Lightening Strikes Many Times in The Same Place

I don’t believe it anymore:
The chances of getting
eaten by a mountain lion
are less than the chance
of getting hit by lightning

Getting hit by lightning
is apparently very common now.

The chance of getting killed by terrorists
at a marathon or in a movie theater, or
at a rally for more female-natural-food chefs
is less than the chance
of getting hit by lightning.
Kaboom.

The chance of WW3 or of
nuclear war is less than
the chance of getting hit by lightning

Apparently Kaboom — the
lightning is like spider veins. There are

so many bellicose veins of thought
and aberration that
the sky speaks fully of thunder

but the lightning lies deny
how common is a mountain lion.

  1. Oh I forgot to do the format paste. So I accidentally just posted plain. It’s very tiring to do special things. Sometimes I just want to write and post… oh well.

    1. You don’t have to make it all fancy for me…you can just write and I’ll still love your words. Maybe there’s more people now so the lightning has a better chance of hitting? Or maybe people just think it’ll never happen to them so they take chances and put themselves in situations where they’re more likely to be struck? I do like Mountain Lions though, unless one were trying to make me their dinner, then I probably wouldn’t like it so much…speaking of dinner…I’m starving

      1. Thanks. I meant to say that things they dismiss without doing anything about it are not so unlikely to happen because they happen more and more. Rather than explain or do something they just say well it’s not likely to happen so don’t worry. “There’s been a terrible tragedy, but don’t worry, because for you, you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than to succumb to an event like this…
