I Hate Lightning

I wish it could rain without lightning
I do not like it at all
When the night is lit up like the day
I always feel it was a close call
I am convinced the lightning wants to get me
I am convinced it lies in wait
For the one moment of my inattention
So it can make me pay
Why must there be lightning
What purpose does it serve
The way it just comes and does what it wants
Lightning has got a lot of nerve!

There was a lightning storm last night so I wrote a fun little ditty about how much I hated it.

    I don't mind lightning. But, give me thunder & rain or just thunder in a nice dark sky any day. It's awesome to drive to. I went through quite a few storms like this back home in Jersey this weekend. Nicely written! :)

    Lighting has many uses, and is a part of nature that we could not do without. I did find this poem amusing, particularly the glaring contrast in your ending note.

    Well lightning can split nitrogen, then the nitrogen combines with oxygen creating nitrates. The nitrates are dissolved in the clouds and comes down in the rain to fertilize the plants. I like this poem btw
