El Niño Has a Calling Card

Pondering the devastation in his wake

El Niño has a calling card
he tends to leave behind.
And what is left when he moves on is bad.
His flooding waters devastate.
His weather is berserk.
The cost in lives and property is sad.

What’s worse is that he’s here to stay
for six to nine long months.
This uninvited visitor is rude.
He’s not content to just behave.
He’s ornery and brash.
El Niño loves to fuel a global feud.
