What Was That

July 25, 2013

Did you hear that?

What the heck is going on?

That was my first reaction

When I bolted out of bed

Early Tuesday morning

Shortly after 2 am

We were sound asleep


There was a piercing sound

I have never heard before

Where’s that coming from…

Is the building collapsing?

Are we being attacked?


Invaded by Aliens


It’s the new warning signal

Sent to all cell phones

Giving an…….

Emergency Alert….

Flash Flooding may occur

Are you kidding me….

As I had my coffee

Later that morning

When most people do wake up

There were splashes all over


All saying the same thing

What was that….

I’ve been up since 2am

Couldn’t get back to sleep

Almost gave me a heart attack

I think

In the future

I will leave my cellphone


In another room

Inside a soundproof vault
