A Plea To Hurricane Sandy

Why should you visit today
when people in USA are
lighting their pumpkins
for the coming Halloween
and for the election of a president?

Why should a hurricane
of your kind pass along
the byways and pathways,
rivers, ports of lakes and seas
leaving again unspeakable
trace of your anger and fury?

Oh, hurricane, hurricane Sandy,
will you please just postpone
your visit, at least, for today?
