Rain, falling like a persistent memory,

Thunder, rumbles louder than the average storm

of distant failures.
Lightning, flashes like lies in the gloom
blinding every sense

Hawkins closed his eyes and tried to calm himself. He needed to remain professional, objective, unemotional; but sometimes it was just too hard. Especially when faced with a scene like the one in Jubilee Park.
