They said that it would rain today
I said, so what, the rain is bound to stop
They said that it would be a thunderstorm
I said so what, thunderstorms usually do not last long
They then said there would be a tornado coming our way
I stopped for a moment and thought
Now that is scary, I better stock up on food and water, I thought
I listened to the TV for most of the day with a rain storm the topic
I heard how they said to prepare for a storm and heavy rains
I checked my closets and refrigerator
And noticed I had plenty of food and water.
I yawned, grabbed a blanket
and fell asleep on the couch
I was really tired
I had been up all night with a cold.
A few hours later I awoke
I looked out the front window
and noticed all the trees still standing
but never saw remnants of a storm.
I did not hear or see a tornado
or broken limbs on the ground caused by rain
Or families rushing to their cars
and driving to safer and higher grounds
I never saw any flooding in the street caused by rain
Everything looked pretty normal outside
The sun was trying to come out
Cars were driving in the street as they normally do
People were walking their dogs
Nothing had changed from earlier today
Except it was beginning to get dark.
When will the TV announcer stop
Trying to scare the people?
One thing is for sure…they did not scare me.
When they talked about the storm coming our way!
I Was Petrified!
