A TROPICAL STORM NAMED DEBORAH
Giant waves build up under the driving winds of tropical storm Debbie.
By PAUL HERTELENDY
The floods from tropical storm named Deborah
Are extreme. Cant it go way, to Denver or Ankara ?
It shut down platforms, and slowed each oil tanker-ah,
And rudely dragged many a ships anchor-ah,
Disrupting the lifestyle of all, from farmer to sailor-ah,
And leaving us fuming, and thawing cold sushi and tempura.
