“Write of Rain!” urges the Bloganuary Muse
It’s not a theme I’d ordinarily choose
‘Tis a tender topic within the land I dwell
‘Cos there’s either too much or it’s parched as hell.
O’Brien’s Hanrahan watched the changing skies
“We’ll all be rooned!” were his constant cries
Whether far too much or not quite enough
That fickle rain had them doin’ it tough.
Right now the floods spread from north to east
Further south and in the west – the sun is a beast!
As El Niño and La Niña perform their dances
Our stewards of the land assess their chances
So to write of rain is a task quite daunting
When such weather seems bent on lots of taunting!
