Please take a vacation
to our neck of the woods.
Perhaps you’ll move here
and lose your worldy goods.

The tsunami like waves 
over your body will wash.
Likely to submerge a carcass
after drowning. Oh gosh!

The solar eclipse makes for
one dark and ominous day.
Historically made people get
on their knees and pray.

The lava flow will turn
your body into a cinder.
Whatever’s in its’ way
burns like a match and tinder.

So if you’re ever thinking
of pushing God’s raith.
A visit here will most likely
test inherent “BLIND FAITH.”
