Another Ordinary Day In Tornado Alley

Poetry By: Ally Shark

It's just an ordinary day in Tornado Alley. Nothing interesting happens there, right? 😛Sure.....

The wild winds start whipping

And the rain begins to pour.

"Get in and get down," warns the weatherman,

"Because here comes the storm."

Lightning cracks and fires burn

Just to be put out by the rain.

Hail falls and trees topple,

Mother Nature must've gone insane!

Rivers overflow and lowlands flood,

It seems that the whole world has become a sea.

And despite the fact that their city is losing a war with Mother Nature,

Not a single citizen is panicking.

Even when the swirling winds become a funnel

No one wants to move.

They stand outside with their cameras on

Hoping their video will be a hit on YouTube.

A couple buildings get destroyed,

A couple cars learn to fly.

Citizens sigh as they go inside,

Because it's just another ordinary day here in Tornado Alley.
