Dorian came calling -along the shore
Authorities could not- have warned people more
But people do -what they will do
And later some- or their families will rue.
Trauma affects, the vulnerable and strong
Reach out to your neighbors when things go wrong
If you lose power- throw perishables out
less than a day a shut fridge helps - no doubt
Keep that generator -out of the garage
Far away -from AC vents -and cars.
Tree roots exposed -flash floods to drive
Boil that water -add bleach to survive
Watch what you pick up -and where you step
Wear gloves and glasses -for clean up prep.
Avoid dirty water- and any downed wires.
Watch all the children -temptations fires.
Safety first -is the message we preach.
