The Retired Bloke

Running in the Rain

It’s a pain

My Mrs

Won’t run in the rain

Chances of a shower

Won’t step out

Nothing in my power

Will get her moving

Even when 

Her hair needs doing

Maybe she thinks

A bit of water

And she shrinks

Frankly I’m frustrated

When I run in the rain

I feel alive full of life, elated

I’m going to get her out

Even if it kills me

Can’t wait for the drought!

    Good write, being in the rain at any time is fine - skin is waterproof.
