far across the world a moth is flapping its wings
in a ditch somewhere some kid is growing
rain along the roof it's sunny somewhere else
up in clintonville it's started snowing
rain in the gutter and a toy boat capsizes
as a sailboat capsizes in the ocean
things are silent sitting in the basement here
we're spinning too fast to feel the motion

squash a bee it stings you and your finger swells
from the cemetery you hear wedding bells
couples making love as a mother tells
her son about the stork
his daddy pops the cork
off a bottle of champagne

and it's raining
it's raining
it's raining
it's raining

cars are driving some are parked and some are crashed
they don't look like much up in an airplane
delphiniums are drowning on the porch at home
pre-packaged in a basket with cellophane
rain in the gutter and a toy boat capsizes
as a sailboat capsizes in the ocean
things are silent sitting in the basement here
we're spinning too fast to feel the motion

a tidal wave in asia kills a million fish
everybody has to die but you still wish
what on earth is happening in the playground
some kid things he's found
a hole in the ground
that reaches to japan

and it's raining
it's raining
it's raining
it's raining
it's raining
raining

    General CommentOne of my other favs.
    Intelligently written, once again.

    Most people dont see what else is going on in the world. They are too preoccupied with their agendas. You could not possibly stay on top of everything.
    So whatever is happening in your life, it doesn't really matter. The world will go on.
