“MAIN STREET MYSTERY”


POET UNDER WATER!!!!! ANYBODY HAVE A SPARE SNORKEL????

By the Mighty Mumford

The deluge heavy in sheets,

Submerged many town streets…

To each deep puddle

The car struggled,

Lunging forward in eaters deep!

Rarely came through in the rain,

This gully-washer was insane…

Had no history

On where ponds would be,

Cruising along Douglas Main.

Deep waters came up as spray,

From vehicles headed my way…

Talk about splash—

By my own I was lashed,

No other cars near to blame!

I’m so glad the car didn’t stall,

I’d have floated away, that’s all…

Like that VW ad.

The flooding was bad,

But in summer–no ice at all!

Running downtown was a wash,

Submerging by a giant wave splash…

Periscope depth

We could have crept,

But made it with certain panache.
