Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . . “
I wonder how many will sing this refrain
as the storm reaches the Lesser Antilles.
Expected to become a major hurricane
with strong winds and torrential rain
this Maria follows in Irma’s footsteps
to cause havoc to the Leeward Islands
and any place which stands in its path.
Are these disturbances caused by us
or are they the result of a divine wrath?
We should at least be seen to discuss
the possibility that it is global warming
the real reason for this wild weather
because the victims of such disasters
are, we see, at the end of their tether.
