The One About… They Call this Blow Maria

Something weather related… with apologies to Harve Presnell and music lovers everywhere…

They Call this Blow Maria
by D. G. Speirs
(To the tune of “They Call the Wind Maria” by Frederick Loewe)

Oh way out east is another storm
to make you forget North Korea
Not Harvey, Irma, or Jose,
No, they call this blow Maria.

Maria ‘s one ambitious storm
as it barrels toward Antigua
Cat 1 to Cat 4 in two days
San Juan, I’d really hate to be ya.

Maria, Maria,
They call this one Maria.

Spaghetti models follow it
As egg heads learn their lesson
But just like Irma and before
All their doin’ is really guessin’.

We haven’t even finished up
Cleanin’ from the last blow.
At least do us a favor, girl
Landfall at Mar-A-Lago.

Maria, Maria,
They call this one Maria.

This hurricane ain’t real of course
Climate change is just a myth.
But we’ll be saved in the movie
(killer ballad by Aerosmith)

So do I have an answer
for our Hurricane Maria?
Fortunately, my friends, I do.

Real estate in North Korea.
