Kind of puts another slant on day to day struggles in a there but for the grace kind of way. Mother Nature's wrath tends to make everyday problems pale by comparison. The way tornados lay towns and neighboorhoods to waste. My god it's heartbreaking to see the utter devastation thrust upon ordinary folks leading ordinary lives until Mother Nature comes knocking.

Karen....I know what ya mean.

These words often come to mind when tragedy strikes in the world.

from The Gypsy Life by John Gorka

There is nothing in my head today
Nothing awful there to ponder or confuse me
Go ahead in what you have to say
And I will listen as I listen to the news

I know the whole truth there is horrible
It's better if you take a little at a time
Too much and you are not portable
Not enough and you'll be making happy rhymes
