Tornado by Alyssa Beauchamp (Highly Commended)

The crack of lightening, the roaring wind
The force that rattles my stained glass pane.
Amid the howling of the wind, I feel a drip, the start of rain.
I wrestled with the bellowing force, it twirled and whirled me round
The damage that the wind had caused cost much more than a pound.
Raging through the great big city, twirling with no stop
It ripped my roof clean off with a great big lengthy POP!
I think that this enormous storm will never end
It uses all its strength and might to rip around the bend.
The wind dies down, the rain stops, it all comes to a halt
My house destroyed, my things are lost, and none of it’s my fault.
