Sonnet 72 -- Bad Sonnet on the Hurrican

I took a drive to see what I could see
And yes, we are indeed in luck today
Branches, trash cans, and leaves were broken free
Some errant Angel must have come my way
Three big trees down on Watchung Avenue
I have no taste for revelry tonight
Halloween, we will not be having you
We have Mother Nature to give us fright
But still, I am pleased with my Governor
And am moved by American courage
Undefeated by the bitch Sandy’s roar
We clean ourselves up and turn the damned page
And pray that we can heed the warning
And stop the madness of global warming
