Elvis Has Left The Building

What we’ve been dreading has finally happened
In my mind’s eye the headlines read

The powerful earthquake we’ve been dreading has hit
the San Andreas fault is shaking uncontrollably

In its aftermath the island of Alameda
will soon be under water for good

Once the Coney Island of the west coast
very propsperous, filled with bright smiles
Now sinking to a new low

Remaining residents are scrambling to safety
the Coast Guard warned

There is nothing worth salvaging
Save your life, get out while you can

Money no longer counts
when it’s come down to this

Elvis has left the building
for the last time

I'm an artist, poet, writer, activist and more. I like writing about the ordinary and transforming it to extraordinary, which I think it already is but you may have been to busy to notice. Sometimes I write about politics, love, relationships, and every day strife. If you like my blog, I invite you to follow me. Thanks for stopping by. Peace and great joy to you always! Cindi
