Malibu is lucky!

This time we were Lucky —

No Santana winds,

Or dryness or conditions,

When the water supply was thin.

But had this been weeks later,

When conditions could be right —

Our way of life and safety

Would not be a pleasant sight.

We all should give serious thought

To “back-up” water supplies;

And necessary pumps and things —

Making it easier to survive.

How come the sum is spent on things

To bring us joy and fun,

And little, if anything,

On a fire that’s due to come?

My life was spent in fighting fires,

And watching humans act —

It’s still a great surprise to me,

How people ignore the facts!
