Bottled water, analgesics, thermometers,
Batteries for the flashlights and radios,
And emergency rations, enough to last six weeks or more.
Nuclear Power Plants are nearby,
Quarantine is inevitable.
But now —
Closets packed with canned food,
And cases of bottled water?
Shop, yes. And replenish the woodpile, too.
But I’ll buy a bottle of wine
A good book,
Cheese and crackers.
Seeds and seedlings for my garden,
We’ll cozy up by the fireplace,
In our favorite blankets and quilts,
To enjoy each other,
And take care of our family.
We’ll continue living our lives.
Common sense, love and caring,
Make survival after any disaster
