Welcome Rains!

The rains have arrived
And I am prepared.

I have booked shelters
at the bus depots,
in public schools,
and in conference rooms.

I have learnt to swim safely
In the murky stinking waters.

I have shopped
for rafts,
for boats,
and for life jackets.

I will use my walking stick
To poke into the knee deep water
and look for unexpected manhole.

I close my eyes for moments longer
and train myself
to sit in darkness

I have learnt few tunes
to kill the silence

Yes I am prepared,
they who promised
are not yet prepared.
