Stormin’ Sandy USA!

Share

Natural disasters from around the world fill our screens with such regularity that most remain invisible. When a storm hits the most communication-friendly country in the world, it impacts with such force that we cannot look away. Watching reporters on CNN and Fox struggling to remain upright in gale force winds 3,500 miles away becomes obsessive. I was surprised when I went out with the dogs out last night that the stars were bright and the path was dry! Sandy is angry…

Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
Her front is a thousand miles wide
She’s whipped up the sea in a fury
You’d do better to stay safe inside!
Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
She’s storming all over North East
She came out of the sea in a temper
And has turned right into a beast!

Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
Her temper is almost complete
There’s a tree right through the window
Blown a reporter and crew down the street!
Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
She’s rocked the political boat
The election is there for the losing
She may determine which way people vote!
Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
She controls the flights in and out
The aircraft are grounded and silent
She’ll decide when they can fly out!

Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
Power outages all over New York
There’s water flowing down in the subways
Just as well there’s no one to walk!

Whatever’s the matter with Sandy?
She’s losing her strength as we speak
The damage she’s done is enormous
To clean up will take more than a week.
With our thoughts and prayers for those affected by Hurricane Sandy
