Jingle Poetry Potluck

The Wrath of Nature Shatters Lives

Powerful winds can desiccate
like speeding cars accelerate;
hurricanes don’t sympathize.
The wrath of nature shatters lives.

Harmless eddies masquerade
and grow into a great brigade;
tornadoes leave no time for lies.
The wrath of nature shatters lives.

Earth, the bedrock of our home,
often becomes our catacomb;
earthquakes destroy all alibis.
The wrath of nature shatters lives.

Transforming waves can lure and thrill
oblivious to man’s free will;
tsunamis haunt and victimize.
The wrath of nature shatters lives.

Thank you. I wrote it after going through hurricanes Rita and Ike. I've been trying to find the right place for it, but after what happened to Japan decided to post it here.
