An Ode to the Harvey Heroes

Date Written: September 3, 2017

This poem is dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Harvey

And the people who helped during and after the storm.


An ode to the Harvey Heroes©


Once upon a time not so long ago

Nature did spur a Harvey in the Gulf of Mexico


As the storm grew into a hurricane
Winds howled and then came the rains


Poor Texas got in the way

And it rained day after day


High water turned into floods

Leaving everyone scurrying including the blue bloods


Onto their roofs they did climb to survive the storm

With so much rain well above the norm


Little did they know a rescue mission was on the go

An impromptu navy of people they didn’t even know


Night and day their saviors were on a mission to rescue
Not knowing the dangers they faced for they didn’t have a clue


But despite the risk and the unknown

How to respond they have us shown


With a great amount of caring and daring

Many a life has been saved though some succumbed to an early grave


So what do we call the brave men and women from far and wide

A hero is what I say and I am not being snide


For they have saved the day for so many of our kin

Not saying thank you and our appreciation would be a sin


So here it is in spades “Thank you” to all who lent a helping hand

And that’s from all of us from across the land


Though things are far from over and done

Many will see a rising sun
