Seven days of rain

Seven days of rain – forecasts
are no longer trustworthy – is
rain fallen-off-by-a-millimetre
enough to reduce our belief?
Plan for failure – etcetera – by
way of avoiding any distress –
by way of low risk [amortised
repayments in rain drops] – In
time it will be paid off [pain is
my credit] –  Pray for flooding
& you get fucking puddles – A
plague on your house & other
curses – None of this is a cinch
for old men with scarred eyes
& left unable to cry – they will
no longer pour out cold tears
as they mourn their lost loves
under flood water [it will pass]
