Biloxi was under the sea for quite a while:
Did fish swim through
Jefferson Davis’s cobwebs?
Beauvoir, glowing icon of Southern history,
symbol of past and future glory,
got hammered that August day, 2005.
Her wings got clipped, this
house of the Confederacy,
wooden siding, structure ripped away,
old mansion windows shattered.
The white apparition above Highway 90
groaned and screamed for hours,
Katrina more cruel than the Yankees.
