After the Rain

The cooling rain charges the air

Electrifying the fine mist

Smoldering clouds boil away

Mother Nature’s emboldened kiss

The hammer strikes the heavens

My skin is chilly and alive

The anger and fury of nature

If vengeful, we shouldn’t survive

But we do, perhaps undeserving

Birds resume their vocalisation

The ground is recharged and lush

Life adapts to human purgation

Rain, rain please don’t fade away

Aquifers and lakes are naked and dying

Grocery shelves stock only sickly produce

The future is bleak and horrifying

Planet waves, cover the flat globe

Reigning down PCBs and benzene

Death courtesy from our better living

Please pass me some Soylent Green
