20 Claps of Thunder

20 Claps of Thunder

20 claps of thunder

19 kids are shouting

18 streets are flooding

17 lanes rerouting

16 lights are flashing

15 horns that blow

14 sirens wailing

13 weather men didn’t know

12 umbrellas going up

11 old ladies fall down

10 times zero yards mowed

   9 fender benders in town

   8  tornado watches

   7 cars skidding by

   6 people wearing raincoats

   5 birds in the sky

   4 baseball games cancelled

   3 little wet dogs barking

   2 trees blowing in the wind

   1 afternoon sky darkening
