Ended up with these three Mikes

Hurricane by any name is a dreaded beast
Monster winds guide every turn and twist

Clouds cluster in enormous darker shapes
Heated moisture dominates form they take 

Dressed in cloudy eye-wall winds rotate

Of a epiphany? Or maybe its madness

Buckle Down

With a tip-top approbation of doggedness
Neglecting the pleasure of the period?

At least that is the way it seemed.

We’re bound from birth, our path too clear
Conformity reigns, we dare to veer

Everyone needs to wear the same hat

Why is it so cruel,
Yet so kind to us?

Both expected and unexpected.

Do you buckle down or stand strong?

I soothe my sexual cravings
