Tornado

The rash of devastating tornadoes in the midwest is frightening. But, as we build our homes in places where nature often rules, and takes revenge for the intrusion — disaster is always looming, and perhaps the warning is clear to live elsewhere?
©2013 by Jon Gutmacher

There are places on this earth
. . . you see . . .
that people should not
ever be

and when a twister comes to town
it tears their lives
and structures
down

and in the forests
fires grow
if homes are built there
they will
go

and by great rivers
mighty streams
when rains they come
their waters
mean

for each and every place
we live
take heed your family’s
safe — not dead

as better places all around
not hearing screams
tornado sound

but if you choose to live
that way
beware that nature can
easily slay

and take your time
hold loved ones near
so you can
all survive
