Always in a heavy rain
On roads or paths that cannot drain
What forms, of course, should not befuddle –
Yes, I’m talkin’ ‘bout a puddle.
Some are fun for kids to splash in
(Or adults, with boots in fashion);
Others look like little lakes
(Missing pipes cause those mistakes).
Great for pigeons, frogs or toads,
Puddles cropping up on roads
Make the traffic start to crawl
And those in cars just want to bawl.
Rain is needed, quite a lot;
Puddles, though, are really not.
Though kids may love that wet terrain,
To drivers, puddles are a pain!
