Rainy Saturday

Rainy Saturday

Farmers and children know
To do what the rain is good for
But I don’t know

I’m trapped by the rain
Alone in my house
Can’t go out to the side of my dame

Please milky sky
Take out your clouds
Out of the city to the farms

Because I’m too old now
To take a shower in the rain
To play games with water again

Because the rain over this town
Is so redundant
As it is over the ocean

And as wasted and useless
As this stupid “poem”
And a tear in the fields of war
