Caught in the Storm


Booms of thunder shake the house
We look at each other, stunned,
Hearing the rain in this windowless room.
We are powerless to stop it.

We look at each other, stunned,
As water creeps under the door.
We are powerless to stop it.
The water covers the floor.

As water creeps under the door,
hearing the rain in this windowless room,
We draw up our feet in collective fear.
Booms of thunder shake the house.
