Caught in the Rain

It came with a flash upon my back Caught off guard, suspenders hanging Madly rushing to find a place so safe From around the bend with a honk “Hey watch your steps” was a shout Horn blowing while in passing One disgruntled taxi driver glaring Newspaper umbrella in ruins Noisy rumbling above from a subway Heading down the track, clank, clank, clank Brown dog barking, woof, woof, looking back Shelter at last, finally found a spot The rain came down with a heavy shout Caught shirtless and without shoes Now sipping coffee listening the blues Feeling brand new tasting some stew
