Thunder Storm

Flashing through the darkened sky,
lightning bolt explodes.
We await with bated breath
as mighty thunder bodes.

With massive crash it resounds,
echoing in our ears;
deafens us with its great roar,
enhancing all our fears.

Then pours down the drenching rain,
in giant buckets full,
soaking us with water cold
as all our senses dull.

Raging winds chill to the bone
and make our bodies shake.
We search desp'rately to find
what shelter we may take.

We stand 'neath a spreading tree,
but that is a mistake.
If the lightning hits that wood,
we'll end up Shake-and-Bake!
