About my neigbour flooding my kitchen out a few weeks back.

Sonnet: Flood


Everything drenched like a drowned rat

Sewage whiff that stayed in a cloying way


Rapidly pelting down hard and fast like rain

My feet paddled in the rising river

Each droplet reeked like athlete’s foot

-Drained from the socks that spun in the wash

Cheap perfume scent; from the pungent

Fumes that filled up around my pantry


The spray over flowed the buckets

Nothing soaked up the dampness at all

The sweat from my forehead added to it.

The puddle seeped through to my lounge too

My heart soared through my ribs; while

Watching all come absolutely saturated!
