A Mother's Children

Lanterns hung where devil decorations strung
No source of heat but wool socks
For numb feet bright red
Power lines sag as lead white perches
Trees strike roads nature is lashing back
At its child back stabs its Mother
10000 burrows struck with the absence of light
All domestic flights cancelled
Passengers, burrow dwellers, frustrated
"Unpleasant conditions" nature's backlash
In a days time
Children back to stabbing her back
