Robinson Crusoe Orders a Generator from Amazon.com

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)

Another hurricane, warning or watch
One forgets which while clearing off the lawns
Of chairs and toys and all the summer dreams
And giving the generator its monthly run

In practiced unison we again recite
The liturgies of flashlight batteries
Bottled water, paper plates and plastic sporks
And Meals-Ready-To-Eat, though they really aren’t

Another hurricane, warning or watch –
And maybe just an inch or two of Scotch
