“Nature Can Do” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 5/7/2021

So The Power’s Been Down ...
For A Few Days Now ...
Frogs, Birds And Sea Sounds ...
Have Suddenly Drowned ...
Those of Cars Driving Round ...
And Folks Running Their Mouths ... !!!

It’s A Time To Reflect ...
Now There’s No Internet ...
Whatsapping’ Or Texts ...
Or Vids About SEX ...

So Whatever Is Next ...
When Nature Presents ...
How It’s Strength’s BEYOND Tech ...
And New Age Viruses ... !!!

What Are We WITHOUT ...
All Our Devices Now ... ?!?

Just Energies Needing ...
Comfort And Some Feeding ...

It’s Humbling To See ...
How Nature Can Be ...
So Powerful That ...
It Can Shut Down Islands ...
And Deal People Hands ...
That Can Lay Their Lives Flat ... !!!

Encumbered And Trapped ...
With No Phone Lines To Tap ... !!!

Due To Energies Sapped ...
And No Way To Transact ...
Through An Internet App ... !!!

Cos’ There’s No Power Now ...
And The Islands Locked Down ...
Without Government Mouths ...
Due To Nature And Winds ...
That Blew Some Things Down ...
In Just Two Or Three Hours ... !?!

An INCREDIBLE Thing ... !!!

When You Think About How ...
Tech And BILLIONS of Pounds ...
Can Make People Bow Down ...
And Behave Like A CLOWN ... !!!

But When Nature’s’ Winds Howl ...

Are QUICKLY FORCED To Bow ... !!!
And Be Thankful For Things ...
That Billions Can’t Bring ... !!!


Here I Am Just Writing ...
But Remembering This ...
That The Day's Hot And Nice ...
And The Sun’s Shining Bright ...

So The Daytime Invites ...
Appreciative Vibes ...
That For Now I’m Alright ...
And Have Food For Tonight ...

Some Phone Charge For A While ...
So I’ll Have My Phone Light ...
To Eat And Chill By ...
As Well As Candlelights ... !!!

But They Are Running Low ...
So I Hope On The Road ...
That Repairs Quickly Flow ...
So That We Can Get Back ...
To The Freedoms We Had ... ?!?

Back To The MASKS ...
And Getting That Cash ...
And Getting Those Jabs ... !!!


To Me It’s Really SAD ...
To See People Collapse ...

Due To Our Reliance ...
On These New Tech Systems ...
That Have NO DEFENCE ...
Against Natures Presence ...
When It Flaunts DOMINANCE ...
In Just A Few Breaths ... !!!


A Power That’s MIGHTY ...
That’s Clearly BOUNDLESS ... !!!

That Proves Tech Is Tiny ...
As Are We ... Humans ... !!!

In The Face of REAL Power ...
That Just Through Winds And Showers ... !!!
Can Simply DEVOUR Like Fires Do Towers ... !!!

So Now Twilight Comes ...
As Does Darkness Too ...
I Hope That You’ve Got ...
What I’m Saying To You ... ?!?

It Clearly Is TRUE ...
All Our Gadgets And Tools ...
Are Just Living Proof ...
of How Vanity FOOLS ... !!!

Cos’ When All’s Said And Done ...
And You’re Back To Square One ...
And Just Have To Make Do ...

WITHOUT Tech, Light or Tunes ...
You’ll Quickly Realise ...

That They’re NOTHING ...
Compared To What ...
