Even Clouds Have a Dark Side
There is something political about a cloud
Is it the substance that seems so solid, or
The asymmetric bias to float with the wind?
Farmers like to believe clouds of favor
Hide beyond the horizon to bless the night.
Showers and lightning strikes apparent to
The sailor and the continental prairie alike
Bring the fresh showers then skies of blue.
The lower clouds observed take the credit
Although the ones not seen, at higher levels
Are the thermodynamic players that permit
The humidity to become drops that fall down,
To earth, to be carried away with the currents
End up in the ocean to become another rain
Cloud, that soak you like taxation incompetents.
