A Rainy Night (To be read after 50 years)
>West steals the Sun,
and the rains.
A nightful of black
veils the earth.
Torrents roar and
clouds are at war.
The bad mad winds,
flashes of the thunder
imperil man and matter.
deep low and steep high,
a mass of evil.
Fraud, fright, frustration,
hatred, cruelty and blood
force the lambs cry,
make the weak die.
Cause and effect!
Heavens burst, Earth
shudders with onrush
of floods in the deadly
night of holocaust.
With purging and
surging, the great
levelling act is on.
Though nobody knows how...
how far there’s
the new dawn.
