Hurricane Cat

Today as Lim, Mr.A.Cat,and I sadly remember the people who suffered and still suffer from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Mr. A.Cat has requested a typing out of this Tribute as the One Year Anniversary reminds us all of our government's shortcomings and unpreparedness--in spite of the touting and empty promises:


You know there's a hurricane cat
who once was a staunch Democrat
Katrina's two eyes
packed too much surprise
and knocked all his illusions flat.

Let down by the Rs and the Ds
New Orleans was brought to her knees
her parish not free
of muck and debris
with FEMA dissolved by degrees.

When Bush promised from Jackson Square
that aid and relief would come there
do presidents lie
while residents die
and bubbles are filled with thin air?

WE HEART NEW ORLEANS AND THE GULF COAST!
