Panic Attack

Lead-in to the evening news
tells about a super storm forming off shore …
“Gather your love ones and head to high ground,
take what you can and find shelter
away from the coast soon to be slammed,
a mega squall with high winds and flooding rains,
don’t put the first responders in danger by not
heeding this warning, get out now.”

Above, the sky darkened, winds never picked-up
no raindrops fell, there was no storm after all
though news reported of trouble on the east coast
no mammoth storm of Armageddon prophesy 

where I live, didn't need the sandbags 
nor the boards but better safe than sorry
after the broadcast induced panic attack.
