My friend and frequent commenter Joan has written a poem about recent tornadic events — take a look:
TWISTED THINKING (Culled from comments on the Good Friday Tornadoes) Blame the end times that are near! Hey! It’s God whom we must fear. Could, be Satan here, my dear Sending out tornadoes swarming. But we surely can’t be blaming Global Warming. Blame the victims for their folly Living in tornado alley Way too dumb to heed the volley Of those sirens of prewarning. But we surely can’t be blaming Global Warming. Maybe God’s targeting sinners Are you saved? Then you’re a winner Atheists He’ll have for dinner It’s ‘those’ people, He is harming. But we surely can’t be blaming Global Warming Yes, well what about the steeple Blown from church where all God’s people Met to worship? Pretty lethal For a caring God. Not charming. Still, we surely can’t be blaming Global Warming Melting icecaps? That’s a myth And the shifting ice-melt drift Now you’re getting me real miffed All these people here in mourning And you’re trying to pin the blame on Global Warming? Now our dialogue’s eroded As our tempers have exploded And name-calling has corroded This discussion that was forming About why this can’t be blamed on Global Warming. If he road to hell is paved With those smug that think they’re saved Cause their death was just now waived From this catastrophic storming Will they hold nostalgic thoughts of Global Warming?
