While walking home from school one day,
We decided a detour was best.
But the sky opened up and it quickly got dark,
And I was astonished to see the rest.
The rain didn't fall down.
It didn't fall straight.
It went left ways and right ways,
It was falling sideways.
Sideways you say? How could that be?
Rain falls down from the sky. That's how it should stay.
We can't have rain falling every which way.
But why couldn't it?
Well, it can and it did.
I saw it. I felt it. It baffled my brain.
It wasn't normal drops splashing.
It was sideways rain.
