Preparedness in Massachusetts,

Those thinking ahead think it nuisance…

To propagate

A nanny state,

In common sense it seems useless.

Those folks who’ve lived here for long,

Find urge for survival real strong…

They don’t need to hear

Facts they know clear,

But not being prepared is wrong!

The State wants us to have a kit,

For as much as we can remit…

No one can trust

The weather’s weird gust,

The idea doesn’t bother us a bit.

If city folks need this reminder,

Far be it for us to be hinder…

That our lads and lasses

Live as time passes,

Responsiblity for their families as a binder!
