remember Noah;

it was wetter then–

raining nonstop.

but they

(the people)

had been warned–

as have we;

about honor

and wealth

and how to utilize these

in human causes

to equalize

and make fair,

without excessive pride.

…and then i saw a family

on TV

in a small boat


in this large city

where little usually floats–

loss of everything,

but not lost.

they bowed their heads

thanking The Protector

of all

for His Mercy

and their lives…

recent migrants

from another troubled city,

even larger;

in an ‘ark’ so small

that some

might over
