Gopher Town

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have spread death and chaos across the Gulf, from Texas to Florida, making believers of those who doubt the power of the ancient Egyptian god Set to cause death, destruction and chaos wheresoever he chooses to go.

The wine dark sea the leaden sky
The petrels flee the storm is nigh
We hunker down into our holes
Poor gopher town so many souls
The wind begins the sound still low
Confess our sins for death we know
And now the sea relentless rise
Comes flowing free ‘neath blackened skies
The buildings shake like shimmered light
We fear they’ll break and fill the night
With unheard screams the chaos let
While as in dreams the dread god Set
Walks flooded streets yet still dry shod
And those he meets know who is god
