Hello, Dolly

Back to Contents

This was inspired by Hurricane Dolly, which hit South Padre Island, Texas, in July 2008.


Well, hello, Dolly.

Please go away, Dolly.

Did you have to come and kick up such a fuss?

You blow like Hell, Dolly.

Make ocean swell, Dolly.

Youíre still looming, youíre still booming, youíre still dooming us.

We feel the land swaying.

See our homes give-waying.

And the folks in charge of rescue donít know beans.

We want you to go away, Dolly.

We kneel down and pray, Dolly,

that you go away and finish New Orleans.
