rain song (take 1)

BIG RAIN
BIG RAIN
BIG RAIN
come down
and pummel us
to a muddy pulp
with your great
smashing fists
of flashing floods

BIG RAIN
swallow us
whole
into your
sky-spanning
maw
in one wide
watery wink
for we are yours
to drink

aye, BIG RAIN!
come on
down here
in a
sudden-billion
sodden fists
of fury-mercy
and beat
the living SHIT
out of us!

yes, BIG RAIN
wash
and wash
and blast
away
the filth
and awful
offal
in a stinging
pelting
storm of
wrath-love

oh, BIG RAIN, scour us!
oh, BIG RAIN, shower us
with your earth-battering
diluvial compassion
all in a crashing passion
of splashing, sloshing,
churning vortices
disgorging
the black-vast deluge
that obliterates
our last
rotting refuge

BIG RAIN
come
BIG RAIN
down
BIG RAIN
on
BIG RAIN
me
