The Place to Be - Day 9

Southern California is the place to be
The sun shines all the time
No winter storms with snow or sleet
The weather is sublime.

It never rains to ruin your day
Hardly a cloud passes by
The problem is, when there is no rain
The place gets awfully dry.

The lakes diminish, the rivers narrow
And in case you were in doubt
They say water will be rationed soon
And we're in a full fledged drought

We don't get hurricanes, tornadoes or snow
And honestly earthquakes are few
But if we don't get a lot of rain soon
I'm not sure what we will do!

Caren E. Salas

Day 9's prompt was to write a poem based on something in the current news, Not wanting to get political, I figured I'd stick to something we in California have on our minds lately: The Drought.
