What’s the point of an umbrella

Held over a soaking head by a stranger

On a very wet day

That ship has sailed, surely

This body could not be any wetter

Were it to jump in a swimming pool

So, what’s the point of an umbrella

 

To share a shelter with someone who has none

To lend a hand to a stranger

To lift a burden that went

Beyond rain and into life’s many disasters

 

To a stranger with an umbrella

Whose face I do not even remember

Thank you
