Yet Another Lost Umbrella

Caught yet again facing a Texas downpour
with no working umbrella to keep me dry,
just this beaten down relic a windstorm tore
over a year ago, still in the car, can't say why
but how not going lost's what 
        a broken umbrella's for. 

My working one I left in Starbucks 
        this Monday last,
I think, or else my doctor's office, can't say
for certain. Once this current tempest's past,
I'd lose it here if I'd held it through today.
Too bad I forgot how to make a sunny day last.
