Mother Nature is not usually vindictive towards men,
except when she bows out of the way for storms.
Maybe she was written out of the plan for land domination
when the sea and the wind chose to combine forces.
Harvey did have a score to settle with his big sister Katrina:
If she can do it, I can too…
What was he trying to prove, this mad tropical storm,
that he was the bigger man?
Like the rest of the named hurricanes, he didn’t care
about lives lost, properties destroyed, families uprooted,
land waterlogged, changing the fabric
of the Texas & Louisiana shorelines forever.
His destruction tendencies, shown in hundreds of miles,
his crowning achievements, his wrath upon innocent humans,
was nothing but a blip on radar,
a bloody feather in his cap,
an aged diamond drowned in the deep.
