Water, Water, Everywhere

Water, Water, Everywhere

Water, water everywhere,
In yards, houses and even cars,
Animals scramble to higher ground,

Dark, Angry Clouds hover above,
Thunder belts its fury,
Spilling the depths of its rage
Upon earth's vulnerable bed,

The sun tries fighting back,
But sun is no match for water,
For water's strength wins the battle,
All surrender to its great power.

Toys, rugs, clothes and chairs succumb,
Drapes collapse from their burden,
Enough, enough earth yells out,
But there is no stopping water now.

It gushes, it rushes and races,
Like a valiant soldier it charges,
Mercilessly destroying everything,
What fury, what relentless energy!

Water laughs in the face of its victims,
Bashing, crushing and thrusting,
Leaving nothing in its way,
Water, Water, Everywhere!
