Close your eyes and hear the rain,
Which sounds like water, wet and plain.
It sounds a bit like falling tears
But bigger and much less salty.
Some hear it on metal roofs fall,
Like little elves playing basketball.
Some hear it on a rubber tarp,
Which, let’s be honest, probably sucks.
Some hear it on roofs of wood.
Better than a tarp, but still not good.
But to me it sounds like my laughter
At a bunch of damp blind people.
Now you probably feel dumb
For closing your eyes
And listening to freaking water!
