My Parade

From dark clouds, a sudden rain 'pon my parade
The water filled tuba complains in my parade

The finger snapping sounds on the gaint metal roof
Gives evidence life not mundane in my parade

The clown was saturated and his make-up ran
His sadness now unrestrained in my parade

The groceries got wet and the plastic bags dripped
And an umbrella could not contain rain in my parade

Walking fast pushing a cart under the umbrella Sunflower droops 
Until she puts the umbrella down in disdain in her parade
