An Alabama Riot

By Elton Camp

When one thing comes to be true,
Hysteria, almost chaos, will ensue

For the only thing that it does take
Is to see just a single snowflake

How to deal with snow, we don’t know
Our reaction will be certain, though

It’s to the store in a wild, mad dash
Clutching credit card or some cash

All the bread and milk will disappear
Long before the snowfall draws near

From the shelves, batteries we jerk
To make sure our flashlights work

If a blizzard should happen to come
We will be prepared, and then some

At most, there’s a dusting on the grass
And then the “winter storm” will pass
