Storm Warning


Attempted terror forecast is the charge.
The weatherman tried scaring us all week,
predicting floods and treefall from the large
amount of rain – an atmospheric streak
of storm. “Be ready for the likelihood
of power outages and roadways blocked.”
(Acquire tarps and batteries and wood:
whatever means the closets are well-stocked.)

I’m sure it’s not conspiracy. Control
of thought is not the weather segment’s aim.
It’s rabid competition, now the role
of those in news is grab attention, claim
the followers by leading off with fear,
and spin till all discernments disappear.
