say so much more
about the coming storm
than maps or radar can forecast.
Take cover.

POEM A DAY APRIL 2015 – PROMPT:

“For today’s prompt, write an authority poem. Maybe you are an authority on something or know someone who is (or who thinks he or she is). Maybe you respect authority, or maybe not so much. Maybe you are on the run from the authorities, in which case I can only say good luck, but this blog probably isn’t the best hiding place–especially with so many folks poeming away.”
