Rain and Thunder 
Rain and Thunder


Youíve got to think fast now,
Make it through this moment,
Make it past,
Anyhow, anyway you can,
To come out smelling like a rose,
Not holding one, man!
Left with shame It seems so lame,
That this awkward pain,
Is whatís reminding me,
That Iím still alive.
And if thatís what it takes,
Then thatís what,
Is going to help you survive.
Never mind the jook and jive,
Thatís just a matter so contrived.

The real matter is -
Being completely lost at best,
Keeping steady,
The beating in your chest.
Even though youíre tired, twisted,
Tried and convicted,
With all the rest.

Surely I jest,
Is it really that bad?
Why on this beautiful earth,
Is my song so sad?
So lacking in mirth,
Uncovered by birth,
Now six feet more,
Or less under.

Because of rain and thunder.
It pounds in me,
Grounds me asunder,
Yet Iím never really dead,
Buried alive,
And seeing red,
Surely to survive.
Down this road Iíve been led.

Because my confusion lies,
And always will,
When I stepped up,
When I stepped out,
When I lifted my tiny voice,
And yelled ďI want out!Ē
Well here I am still.

I kid you not,
Iíve done these very things!
Iíve talked and yelled,
Squawked and spelled.
And nothing seems to make the sting,
Whereís the reality bring,
Itself into play and sing?
Oneness and tenderness,
Blinded, just me?
Or blindsided by being too free?

What the heck am I thinking?
And I havenít even been drinking,
Yet I feel myself sinking,
Into this rat finking world.

Twirl, spin,
Spun with a grin,
Even having some fun,
At my own expense.
Riding the fence.
Of jest,
And just as intense,
Oh light some incense,
Ďcause here I go down again,
My precious friend.

proving yet again that you are a true master of the extended poem. Other people who might have written something at this length would probably catch some flack but you keep it interesting the entire time.
