The Reason for Rain
My teacher asked me to explain
what makes the clouds pour down their rain.
I said, "I know, I know that one!
Dad makes it rain to spoil my fun.
See, often on a Saturday
- the day I go outside to play -
dad makes it rain and I know why.
He wants chores done until I die."
At least that's how it seems to me.
My teacher seemed to disagree.
