Hurricanes Don't Worry: Poems from Men in the Harris County Jail

Harvey’s Rage

Anthony Leonard

Flooded streets, washed out homes
People spread in sheltered domes
Harvey came in quick and strong
Gale force winds, no house stands long
Sounded loud, like a lion’s roar
Light up bright from its thunderstorm
He tore up old things decades old
Leaving stories left untold
And then he left us. No guilt no sorry
Left us behind. Hurricanes don’t worry
