Just Beneath The Boardwalk

 


JUST BENEATH THE BOARDWALK

tumultuous waves
churn the depths of the sea
just beneath the boardwalk

swelling tide
beats the rotten boards,
weakening their hold

impending wrath
of mother nature
coming on shore

key indicators
enable residents and visitors
to scramble and flee

holding on
to upbeat hopes
of returning to this place of charm
