The Storm

Flash, Rumble
Awesome thunder
The wind will plunder
As did the pirates from on yonder
Raid, fall
Damn! My ship is sinking
The water stinging
The storm moves onward
I'm tired, I'm cold, I sink, I die.

Mike Rollins

The Rain

I say old
man ,
listen to that
Walking is no fun
on a night when horizontal rains
Scurry to the back yard
hurry quick then lie
by the fire.
