Torrential Rain

It downpours  
Extremely hard, and    
Even goes wilder and wilder    
As if, it is crying for    
Losing its lover    
   
Floods swept, so    
A little girl got flushed    
Her grandparents shouted for help    
Luckily, she was saved    
The soldier who rescued her, asked    
Why he was sad    
He sobbed, and    
Showed his broken heart    
   
Buses drove into the rivers    
They were once asphalt roads    
Passengers said    
The buses were like subs    
One taxi driver was so blessed    
Even though his car was drowned, and    
Soaked in the river road    
   
Work or not work    
Delayed to announce    
The city mayor got cursed    
By the furious public    
For the worsened rainfall    
Stranded many people    
   
Bridges, cut    
Roads, broken    
Schools, closed    
Businesses, shut    
Flights, cancelled    
Travelers, trapped    
Airports, suspended    
Railways, inundated    
Residents, evacuated    
   
People beg for mercy    
Hope the earth won’t get crazy    
And their homes won’t be messy    
For not being too late, please    
To cease the deadly downpours    
And their accomplices    
Floods
