Sirens, green and purple skies,
We need to hide, we need to hide, we need to hide
Yelling to get to safety when
there was no close danger
Hearing the cracks of lightning
and the bashing of clouds
"I guess God is cleaning up His house"
"Western Boone school district
is closed due to inclement weather"
the TV says. We're woken up
and told to sleep because of the snow
It's windy now, I can
barely stay in place. Holding
onto my mom's hand so I
don't fly away. Bread, milk, eggs.
