she’s visited before
but no one paid much attention, unlike Father Time
she gives everyone a second chance
so again she nudges
asks greed, propaganda and violence to please
take a back seat and when they refuse, she turns
to her female wiles
snatching up electric power, along the Eastern seaboard she dances
her full moon transforms into a terrifying tidal wave
her winds make Atlantic City a personal play thing, she
causes public transportation to cease and
beats the billionaires as she forces Wall Street to close!
in a cacophony of travel advisories and evacuations,
burst through this crucial Election year
besting both Obama and Romney uniting red states and blue states
reminding us that
is stronger ... than us all.
