Poem #177 of 365

I played Frogger in the rain
as the standing water puddles
deterred my low-riding car
at every turn.

In rainstorms such as this,
we are permitted to make
any random parking lot
our lily launching pad,
as we wait out the torment.

I've hopscotched a few curbs
and sidestepped some
spillways and enjoyed a
moment or two of flagrant

I'll do anything to keep
the car running,
my drive dry,
and the boss from
exploding into
thunder if i'm late.
