& the thunder echoes through

the night sky

bringing with it

tantrums of

twisting rain droplets

panging to & fro

from one side of the roofs &

blacktop,

to the old metal rowboats laying

upside down in someone's

back yard,

sending shudders through the

carrying quick moments of relief

for those suffering in the

sweltering

of an earth being baked

but the relentless sun

ushering in the necessity for our

existence,

while at the same time

cooking us to a crisp &

giving us

cancer---

lucky we are to have the

system of checks &

balances

which the universe provides at this

point in time,

because it will not always be &

one day

when Andromeda comes slamming

into us at approximately

250,000 mph.
