Random Poem:

It's Persisting Down! (revised)
hobby

Kamikaze rain
 1
drops
 2
towards random unsuspecting targets.
 3
 
 
‘Shields up’: civilians are protected.
 4
 
 
Gathering en-mass,
 5
like-minded forces
 6
join the troops, swelling
 7
trenches are breeched;
 8
gurgled battle cries resound; the invasion
 9
comes in waves.
 10
 
 
… and in the distance, the rumbling undertone of war.
 11
 
 
Wellington boots
 12
but still they are persisting
 13
down, a rising tide of depression.
 14
 
 
What can we do
 15
but sit
 16
and wait out the storm.?
 17
