Still Raining

A friend of mine in the US of A

Asked me, has the rain gone away?

Rain I said, you mean that stuff,

The stuff I had said we've had quite enough.

No it's still persisting and doesn't want to go

He smirked in his flip-flops and sombrero

Me, I stood in my galoshes and sowester

And complained it's now up to my chest sir

He scoffed and laughed just a little

And the rain grew heavier than just a drizzle

And he announced, well here it's near on eighty degrees

All I could do was remember the sun and sneeze

And blame that confounded Jetstream

For the never ending cloud and lack of sunbeam

And the heat from the states

Causing our puddles, ponds and lakes

I carped, I've had enough of low pressure and depression

I have had enough of this wet meteorological lesson

Then as the flood reached passed my shoulders

He sunnily said why you don't come over

Hop aboard a yacht, that's what to do

Or find an Ark, a row boat or canoe

It was a kind offer, a mighty fine idea

But not even a banana boat could I find near

All I could say in answer to his question

Through garbled gulps and splutter interpretation

Wait a just a minute I think the rain has stopped

Give me a moment and I'll soon have all this mopped

The weather is changing perhaps it will rotate

Sun over England and rain in the states

Then the heavens opened again and the water continued to rise

Over my ears and into my eyes

And all that could be seen of the place I did stay

A snorkel tube sticking up and sowester floating away
