Hurricane winds and snowstorm got together,
To teach us humans a thing or two about weather,
The skies in St. John’s turned amazingly white,
On a Friday when folks are not in a mood to fight
The snow came down fast recording 4cm an hour
The mighty hurricane exhibited its power
It blew away anything that came its way
It humbled the locals so much that day
They agreed to stay home and pray.
A state of emergency was declared
Some got their cameras to catch the horror
Houses broken to pieces, wind spreading terror
All I could do was repeat ninety-nine names of God,
Hoping we’d be forgiven and live to see,
Another fine day, the sun shining in glee.
