I didn't know

What to say

When the News

Stuttered the word

Flood.

 

I prayed

For no school,

And knew it wasn't enough.

 

Strong currents

Traveled

Down where they weren't

Welcome before.

 

Staggering words

Of chaos

Lingered at my door.

 

People traveled

In sorrow,

Umbrellas ready

For the tears of God.

 

I lined up

In the streets

Like my neighbors

And prayed harder

Unprepared

For the odds

Against the mighty one.
