AugPoWriMo 9

The latest report confirms 
what we knew all along which
is that you cannot predict
with any certainty the weather

based on any solid interpretation
of the facts as we know them
at this time in the face of
insurmountable odds

be grateful the molasses
you walk through on the way
to the car remains breathable
for now anyway for the time being

while beings still roam the planet
making terrible decisions
that might be uneducated guesses
checking the unpredictable

which is completely foreseeable
not to be undermined by any
long range forecast that even
if we knew would come to pass

still leaves us gasping aghast
