Vicious Winds

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Vicious winds can blast the town
and rip sweet dreams apart
Vicious winds can blow you down and break a tender heart

Vicious winds can burn the skin
and whip an intense blaze
Vicious winds can give you spin and leave a cloudy haze

Vicious winds can nip the plan
and change a listed game
Vicious winds can make you ban and stake another claim

Vicious winds can raise the roof
and hoist items unbound
Vicious winds can flip you goof and shake the very ground

Vicious winds can chill the night
and pierce a refuge place
Vicious winds can twist you tight and cause a basket case

Vicious winds can cast the die
and incise like a knife
Vicious winds can pass you by and keep an intact life
