Thunderstorm (Poem)

Arguing violently
amongst themselves
over little things:
Which temperature is better,
The prefered precipitation,
Whether electricity should be outlawed.
All of which
violence is
Unnecessary to solve.
But they are soon overtaken
by their anger for the “opposition,”
and the Storms begin,
Tormenting the surface of the earth.


I wrote this in August 2013. I made some changes from that original version.
