Mother's Angry

August, it's late in the month,it's been many years
but a quiver is felt in the earth, in southern Colorado.
Some folks slept right through it, others felt it and 
realized what was happening, An Earthquake. Was this
meant to be?    
                         Maybe....Mother's Angry

The very next day, in the part of our Country, where
our Country began. Mid morning and again the earth
began to quiver, then shake. Buildings were evacuated,
The Capital... Evacuated, bricks loosened and felled, Why ?

                         Maybe... Mother's Angry

The following week, calm was interrupted by darkness,
hail, lightening, tidal surges, flooding, devastation and death.
New York as well as New England as a whole felt the wrath
of a storm named Irene, 43 dead...Why?

                        Maybe...Mother's Angry

The day after Irene, was the anniversary of yet another storm,
where the sky grew dark, hail, floods and people died, Her name was
Katrina. The Northern Gulf States felt her wrath. Why?

                        Maybe... Mother was Angry


Throughout the history of Mankind, we have done with this Planet as we will.
We dug and drilled into her womb for her resources, we have deforested, not only
for lumber for space but mostly for necessity, which turned to GREED. As any other 
living thing, it takes and takes and takes being abused for just so long, and then
It Gets Angry! Guess What !

                                       Mother's Angry !
