California Wildfires and Snowfall In NYC

Whenever we mere humans think against the forces of nature we are on top
A natural disaster quickly brings that thinking to a complete stop
The Camp Fire in Northern California has risen to 71 kills
The damages will be in the millions upon millions of bills
Miles from the fire in Berkeley at Cal
Air quality has cancelled Big Game at its locale
Thousands of structures burnt to the ground
From a fire days earlier growing by leaps and bounds
Trump has arrived on scene to the destruction view
Hopefully aid forthcoming and a hatchet buried with the ruling Blues
3000 miles to the East our largest city New York is brought to its transportation knees
A few inches of snow blockading workers trying to from the city to homes trying to flee
DiBlasio when it comes to fulfilling the basic duty of government to its citizens protect
Is like Nero fiddling while Rome burns and why New Yorkers him should reject
Unprepared for even a white dusting of snow
Shiver to think when in the winter the blizzards really grow
Disasters take down haughty humans a notch
Force us to reflect on our frailty then reach for two fingers of scotch
