How a dog prepares for a storm

A Dog's View of a Storm

by Paul McFarland

Farmhouse Contest Winner 
The weatherman says there's a violent storm
That's headed down our way.
My human friends, who live with me,
Are kneeling down to pray.

They've battened the hatches, put sandbags out,
As each one is losing their head.
I know, darn well, that I'll be all right
If I just climb under the bed.

Writing Prompt
There's a storm coming. Your pet laughs when you start preparing for it.
