another year of oddities and surprises
mother nature dittos her wrath
angered winds leave a destructive path
yep, the weather continues to amaze
fickleness is obvious the intent is hazed
the population grows so do our woes
invasions, famines, strikes, and disease
sadly, mother earth has skinned her knees
the clock may say it’s in charge
but our journeys in time still at large
