Atlanta Rains

Updated on October 27, 2009

When It Rains


Rain comes down in Atlanta

Atlantans like people everywhere

Some are fine; others have no cheer.


The gong shouts out

Nature all over sprouts

But the sighs are dug deep

Why all this rain about?


Moods are ripe; moods undoubtedly say

Rain, rain, go away,

Come another day.

Why here? Why now?

The band's ready to blast

The die are cast

Today's the day to finish that job - at last.


Atlantans, why sweat?

Is yester year forgotton yet?

The ground was parched, lakes almost dry

Send rain, send rain

We cried and cried.


Businesses went,

Jobs disappeared

Hearts were gripped by strokes of fear.

Drought, drought, why here? Why now?

Go away! Come back never year.

This was our constant prayer.


And the rains came.

For many bringing pain.


Really?


Despite the gloom - disappointed many

For others it's just another day - right Johnny?

Watch the highways - note the speeds

Vehicle race on, gallop on

Rain no difference makes

But the toll is sore -

Accidents when dry, some

On raining days, many more.

One wonders who these crazies be -

Come rain or shine one should flee

For on speed should no limits be.


Crazies!


Yes, rains are here!

Let's dance a jig and throw a cheer.

Outdoor activities limited, but do not stop the fun.

Life goes on though rain or shine

Throw out the slime - go wine and dine.

Why be a troll?

It's nature - we have no control.

      Thanks, Tim. I appreciate the compliment and understand your sentiment. There are times when wished it would not rain, but my stance is - I cannot change it so better make the best of it.
