Rain, do not disturb me!
With your tap
Do not keep me awake with your constant nagging,
Your persistent dreary pecking,
Like a beetle in the rafters, awaiting my demise.
Do not crawl around my windows, burrowing through the saturated frame
causing the mold to salivate and sweat
with black sticky sap
Do not disturb me rain, for tonight I will anhydrate you.
