Oh how funny it is to see
People running in the rain.
They put their hands above their heads-
They think it keeps them dry.
Every inch of ground is wet
Rivers of water run down gutters,
The rain is falling, it’s tumbling down
Drenching everything it touches.
Drivers are losing their patience
And their knowledge of road rules too,
Pedestrians aren’t much better
Common sense has disappeared too.
The night is drawing nearer
Much faster than before,
The rain, it’s still a-falling down
And it’ll come down more and more.
I wrote this during a bout of torrential rain, watching drivers and pedestrians reactions to being stuck in such heavy rain.
