Counting the cost of non-stop tornadoes
The spinning winds have spun again
and left a wake of pain.
The dreams of millions have been dashed
by swaths without a name.
Unlike their cousins hurricanes,
tornadoes are but winds.
Without a name by which they’re known,
they simply churn and spin.
Anonymous, (and yet they cause
such catastrophic loss),
these airborne beasts deserve our wrath
for what their pillage costs.
Let’s pray for those now victimized
by Nature’s “winds of war”
where farmlands became battlefields
and casualties the score.
