Heavy Weather

Look up at the sky above; no wonder it’s so grey!

It isn’t raining cats and dogs, but elephants today.

Quickly, dodge them! Run and duck! Those flabby beasts are flumping!

Dropping, plopping from the sky; can’t you hear them thumping?

They’re flobbing on the paving stones: ker-THUNK, ker-THUNK, ker-THUNK.

Umbrellas, quick! They’re falling thick! Watch out – here comes a trunk!

Hear the whooshing noise they make, and then each thunderous thud

As puddles form, immense and grey; it’s jumbo-jumbled mud!

I wonder when it’s going to stop, this really heavy rain.

And do you think that elephants fit neatly down a drain?

Look up at the sky above; no wonder it’s so grey!

It isn’t raining cats and dogs, but elephants today.
