To The Rescue - one year later

“There’s a Cat-1 heading to our state.”

News man said, “Prepare now, don’t wait!”

Dark clouds began coming into view;

Oh, uh, this guy’s growing to Cat-2 !

Time to yield to chief’s command,

Or leave it to Providence’s hand;

But, as for my family and me,

Into the house just in time for Cat-3 !

Watching it play-out on TV,

While praying for all - on bended knee.

Watched young men soaked from foot to hair,

Rescuing others with awesome care.

In spite of feud with Harvey’s Cat-4

Along with each inch of downpour,

Men first make safe their family’s lives;

Then strangers, from Harvey’s strifes,

Storm could cost own life - that they knew.

And yet, fearless, they help save a few;

At times like these men’ll never know

The worth that they bestow

When told, “Thanks.” They swallow a grin,

Then back to the melee, they dive back in !

Whether submerged junker or house ornate,

House trailer, mobile home or Estate,

Rescuers are happy they made things better

By helping all deal with wind and water

In big towns like Corpus and Houston,

And small towns like Anahuac and Odem.
