Hello Hurricane Katrina
Hello Hurricane Katrina. How are you these days?
The last time you visited us we shall never forget
Your generosity, kindness, humility, love, hard work
Which community cannot remember your lovely hymns?
Every household you visited there was merry making
The hungry you fed and the thirsty you gave drinks
Children sang songs of welcome and farewell in joy
Beggars became rich and the homeless got own homes
But tell me the truth about your humble and kind origin
Which country do you come from? What is your citizenship?
Rumors put it that you are offspring of civilization gone aback
Can civilization gone aback produce a saintly creature you are?
Hurricane Katrina the kind and loving guest to every home
Comes with red and white flowers of love and tent to every man
