Hooligan Wind



I watched the wind having wicked fun today
Stripping leaves from trees and hurling them like confetti
Forcing flowers to frantically dance to any old tune
Sucking up grit and spitting it in unsuspecting faces
Snatching hats from the heads of hapless Hooray Henrys
And howling with inane laughter all the while...
Hooligan wind!
