Water, Water Everywhere!

Just sitting in my living room today
when suddenly there's water all around
a trapdoor in the ceiling up above,
below another hidden underground
The door is jammed, I can't go out that way
my mind in panic thinks this way or that
the lower trapdoor will not open now
the pressure of the water swirling grey
To reach the ceiling I must grab a chair
a heavy one which will not float away
the water rising higher all the time
I push, I climb, I stretch and slowly sway
At last my reaching fingers reach their goal
the trapdoor opens onto rooftop high
As the water rises, so too, do I
and see above me rescue and the sky
What caused this flood, I wonder as I rise
and cannot quite believe what I can see
for every where I look from my safe view
expanse of water meets my startled eyes.Copyright 2014 alilee. All rights reserved. FifteenMinutesOfFiction.com has been granted non-exclusive rights to display this work. For permission to reprint this item, please contact the author.
