"Zeus's Hello" by Nicholas Brennan

The thunder and lightning came

Rolling over the horizon. The clouds

Glowed red from the distant city and

Flashed long before it was heard.

Cigarette after cigarette scorched my

Lungs as I sat smoking and gazing from

That grassy knoll somewhere in Texas.

As the storm drew down, I saw clouds touch

The ground with white, spindly fingers

Zigging and zagging, streaks of yellow

Flashed across the sky. I observed

Zeus throwing pieces of the heavens at

Mortals. The rain, promised to the

Ground, was on its way. As the last

Cigarette burned in my mouth, I

Decided to move to safety. Flashes and

Crashes shook my room as I gaze out.
