Nature Is Rebelling Against Man

Nobody thought what causes the destructive force
of an hurricane in hot summer months, one thing
we can't deny is Nature rebelling against Man;
Harvey is followed by Irma, others will arrive soon.

A fierce wind bending and cracking palm trees
blows away rooftops, traffic signs and lampposts,
we build and rebuild in the same spot hoping
that he next one won't be as wild as he last one.

Our prayers are vain, God is not listening
to our desperation, we all are to blame;
we forget Him when times are good,
and invoke Him when tragedies strike;
the devil laughs and dances seeing our vanity
and foolishness, and in these he greatly rejoices.

Another full moon in September will allow tides to rise,
and they will rise ten feet high and flood streets, avenues
and boulevard and wipe out what was built to withstand
any storm, but not hurricanes of this unimaginable magnitude. 

Defiant people choose to stay and ride out the fierce hurricane
and behind bordered windows and doors...will they beat it or die?
Mostly likely, they'll be drowned without a chance to be rescued, 
the aftertmath is indescribable: wreckage and death everywhere.
