Author unknown: ‘Twas the night before Irma…

Twas the night before Irma and all through the house

Everyone was nervous, except for my spouse.

The shutters were hung ‘round the house all with care,

In hopes in the morning it still would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of spaghetti models danced in their heads.

And me in my night gown, and hubs in his cap,

Had just had some shots and a keg we did tap.

When outside the house there arose such a clatter,

We sprang from our chairs to see what was the matter.

Away to the window jumping over our clutter,

But we couldn’t see sh*t because of the shutters.

With snacks in hand, and a go-bag all ready.

We retired to our room, hoping our roof did stay steady.

With a silent prayer said for all the residents of our state.

We will hunker down no choice now but to wait.
