Cavalcade of Cliché, 19

(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.)

The Reigning Cliché

We all have used that saying, yes?
“It’s raining cats and dogs.”
A much more pleasant saying than,
“It’s raining skunks and hogs.”

But even if it’s raining hard—
Right here, right now, today—
I wish that we could stop the reign
Of cats-and-dogs cliché!
