They are reporting
a serious event —
they’re not certain
when it will hit
nor exactly where or how
but they have no doubt
that when  it arrIves
it will make a serious impact.


The experts  on television
stand before us
and spell out the possibilities
and we ought to be
scared out of our wits
for we are certain
we are in the path
of this onslaught
and there is no telling
what it will do.


This has never
happened to us before
for we have never
been old before.
