Lightning over Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Drizzle, drizzle, flash, boom-boom
Another thunderstorm is passing through
A man running to his car is soon soaked through
The traffic on the street still zoom-zooms

A parking lot quickly becomes a two-inch lake
As flash flood waters over run the drains
Another lightning flash and the night is day
But, only for a moment, then it’s night again

Nerves get edgy and tension mounts
Motorists desire to just get home somehow
Pets at home nervously start cowering down
It’s the thunderstorm drama back in town

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
