When it rains it pours

Four in the morning
Rain beats the windows and doors
Battering my heart ❤️
Till emotions are pouring
Issuing flash flood warnings ⚠️

Game Day


A familiar score
Belts The Star-Spangled Banner
Jets soar above
A coin toss kicks off
Bets with a fifty-fifty
Popular wager
It’s the food and drinks
Commercials and half-time shows
Pools that I adore
Win or lose we choose
To feed greedy appetites
With our traditions
