Poor Uncle Tom

He lies in peace beneath this tree where death by shock came suddenly. That thunderbolt struck Uncle Tom- he faced the storm before the calm. April 16, 2019 Premiere Contest: Your Best Light-Verse Poetry Sponsor:L Milton Hankins

Well that’s weird... I’m trying to self publish an ancient novel (which is driving me to distraction) and by and large it centres on a character who is struck by lightning, while under a tree. Spooky congrats on your win with this natty four liner, Sandra. Terry
