Whatever the Weather

Submitting to the power of mother nature…

Whether the weather
that we're called to weather
is a scorching heat wave or it's rain,
the weather we whether
like a ball on a tether
is a here-again there-again game. 

The weather spawns fires and flooding.
There're tornadoes and rip tides and drought.
And the weather we weather
whatever the weather
reminds us who's boss. It has clout!

Whatever the weather
that we're forced to weather,
it's obvious who is in charge.
The weather we weather
still finds us together
admitting we're small and it's large.
