Before the Solar Storm...

Before the Solar Storm...

'Best ask yourself 'how would you fare'
If olde natural ways became again the norm?
Our modern power grid's at risk: beware!
In these calm days before the solar storm...

The last time our near Sun truly wildly flared
Was in the mild year of eighteen fifty-nine
We danced 'neath northern lights then shared
When bright nights were rare and so Divine

But now we take electric lines for granted
We just assume they will work there always
Our perception is naiavely warped so slanted
In these the cooler first of your last city days

Imagine how would be powerless urban life
How deep then grows the hunger and dark thirst
Therein men's desperation fast breeds social strife
Such black conditions bring humanity's stark worst

Test task yourself: just how could you fare
When Nature's ways become the new norm?
Our modern power grids are at risk: beware
In these calm days before the solar storm...




Author's Notes: In 1859 a powerful solar flare sent magnetographs on Earth off the charts as people watched brilliant northern lights as far south as Florida.
