I wake to the sound of thunder rumbling
I pull the covers back over my head, grumbling
“Is it still going to rain all day today?”
NO, please no, let there be another way.
Forecast calls for occasional storming
And to watch out for tornadoes forming
It’s been raining and storming for over a week
My back yards a lake and my roof’s gonna leak
I have no problem with Mother Nature
Doing her job with occasional adventure
But day after day of continual rain
Is getting on my nerves, being a pain
The lightening crashes all around
It does look beautiful as it streaks to the ground
But then my internet and cable go out
That makes me angry and I want to shout
I shake my fists to the heavens and growl
Why do the winds have to blow and howl
I thought “light rains” were in the forecast
How long are these downpours going to last?
Day after day and hours upon hours
We endure these “occasional” thunder showers
Oh wait! Is the sun poking through clouds in the sky?
Nope, that’s just the street light opening it’s eye.
I’ve put up with this cold and wet without end
Mother Nature is definitely not being my friend
I guess I should shut up and let her put on her show
Or she could decide to turn this rain into snow.
