The Weather Lorax

Just before Christmas 2021 A historic wind storm Setting a new norm Swept across us all Continental Divide sigh I told you so Tornadoes spun from Minnesota snow Blew out a Kentucky candle factory Days before Tropical hurricane here in Michigan My lit up life-size Christmas bear Wobbled around the bare backyard Side to side Like an old man on bad hips Or a bow-legged cowboy Hands on holsters Pacing steps to the final showdown I draw In shorts T-Shirt and Birkenstocks Santa cap He howls to the ground Upside down Shaking in the foreboding wind.
