Megastorm In Memory of Hurricane Sandy

A mighty force lurks out of sight
Far out o'er the sea
About to bring a monstrous fight
Like none we've ever seen

The time winds by and on the air
The wind is first to show
It starts out as a breeze so fair
But endless is it's flow

It picks up strength and close behind
The waves march up in force
Starting small but larger still
They crash upon the shore

Sheets of rain pour in and bring 
Lightning with thunder booms
The storm is here its clouded rings
Over the city looms

Stretching vastly north to south
It surges on full steam
A powerful force within its clouds
To flood the streets and streams

Abandoned towns lie in the path
As well as cities large
A war upon this nation hath
This storm declared its charge

It turns the day to black like night
Invades the cities holds
Upon the shore it bears its might
Reshapes it in the cold

Boardwalks fall into the waves
Their hungry mouths want more
It gouges harbors into caves
And floods the lower floors

The rains join in and now they lay 
To waste the country land
Two northern storms join in to play
Snow is now at hand

Lakes are formed in valleys low
Where cattle used to graze
While higher spots are cold with snow
The world all in a haze

Hours pass and now the storm
Its strength starting to fade
A hope is seen and human forms
In streets now start to wade

A mighty cry goes up at last
The storm moves on its way
The time has come and now alas
The cleanup will take days

Surviving souls will always see
This storm in their minds eye
Though the hardest times are yet to be
The sun shines in the sky

A nation rises up to save
And help life start anew
For we are all one and the same
The red the white and blue
