Soaked and sunless

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Another long week of water battles with Mother Nature.
Is it ‘the Devil is beating his wife’ or is it
‘the Devil’s wife is beating him again’ ?

It doesn’t matter in Texas. It’s raining again.
Texas flood June 2016People hopeful for tomorrow.
This morning another lightning storm.
First responders and last resorts.

Hey, we got a dog rescued,
and a herd of horses and some cattle!
We are crying in the boat and still afloat.

G_d bless Texas National Guard!

Take me away ELO like only you can.

“Showdown”
Electric Light Orchestra
Written by Jeff Lynne and Lisa Gerrard

She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headin’ for a Showdown

Bad dreamer, what’s your name
Looks like we’re ridin’ on the same train
Looks as through there’ll be more pain
There’s gonna be a Showdown

And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There’s gonna be a Showdown

Save me, oh save me
It’s unreal, the suffering
There’s gonna be a Showdown

And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night
