My Rain Dance

My Rain Dance

It is raining like all get out
in the Sunshine State today...
coming down in thunder as
the lightning strikes away.
The weather doesn't matter
to the dog that lives right here...
Since we have potty trained her,
she must go out, it's clear.

So I donned my rain galoshes,
grabbed my umbrella from the porch,
opened that umbrella,
and held it like a torch...
And out into the pouring rain
we trampled, she and I,
when the faintest hint of movement
caught my wary little eye...

Alas, a baby lizard who had
wandered far and wide,
was clinging to the bar above
my head, right there inside....
Now I'm not much for critters,
although I love them from afar...
and wasn't thrilled to see this
fella hanging on that bar!

Now picture this, I'm standing
in galoshes in the rain...
with a German Shepherd puppy
on a leash that's taunt with strain...
As I'm dodging pelting raindrops
there came a great surprise...
that squirmy little lizard fell
onto my head, unwise!
Now this is how my rain dance
was performed in hapless haste...
and sure enough, its raining still
so all was not a waste!
