Pent Up Anger

Poem By Tom Higgins

The howling wind interrupted my dreams,
Some time in the early morn.
It was a dark and moonless night,
With a long time left till dawn.
The roof it shook, the windows too,
The doors it seemed did breathe,
As Mother Nature's pent up force,
once more was loosed the leash.
I lay awake listening, in fear, and fascination,
That such destructive forces can grow,
To threaten the very fabric of a nation,
From the gentle summer breezes we know,
And trust as our true friends,
When they conspire together for power,
Then for many they deliver the end!

The Lord above, he came to me and whispered in my ear,
'some folks down there, live their lives in ignorance and fear,
so think how easy it would be to get them to pay,
to listen to you spoutin' off about me every day! '

They launched at dawn, Jim and his mate,
both men unaware of their mutual fate.
The boat was small, the sea was calm,
and neither of them foresaw any harm.

Song Of Life?

If the god I don't believe in,
really made it all.
Why did he include death and illness,
yes why do these horrors fall,
