More than two weeks ago 
That reputation was proven true.

Towns and cities were locked down
Because of the ash falls you spewed
Many businesses were unoperational
Animals were left unattended...Read More

‘Put your best foot forward’, old hat
Now ‘Put your best face forward’
The more, the merrier

they drive us crazy every...Read More

Although previously I wish I knew
Your love could sometimes grow untrue
Prompting me approach and tactic to reconsider
To avoid making a serious blunder
That turns me into a mere bystander
