Storm Warning

Storm Warning by Rob Hood©6-22-08

A tornado warning has me alert.

I have fears that I'll be found

Lying in the dirt.

I'm on th 12th floor.

To escape would be

A major chore

I'm in a waiting room

With loads of windows

Near me provoking

My increasing gloom.

I don't want to be a victim.

I'm very fearful

Of the meterologist's dictum.

Fearfully I approach the exit door

as the sound of the storm

begins to roar!

Hail is falling all around.

Pieces of ice as big as

golf balls have hit the ground

Lightning flashes fill the sky

I doubt that when I reach my car

I'll be dry.

I'll be so thankful

if I make it home

I promise in a silent prayer

that I'll never roam.
