Raindrops

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’”

Falling////////////////////

On our heads

OOOOOooooo

Maybe while we sleep

zzzzzzzzzzzz

Don’t we wish

But instead

0

Zero

Nothin’

Nada

[sigh]

Somewhere else

????????????

Some other soil

Some other state

Some other country

There’s bound to be rain

///////////////////

MeanwhileBack at the ranch

……………….

No more cows

0

Hauled ‘em all

To Jordan Cattle Auction

Mass exodus

Trucks pulling trailers full up

Waitin’ A line a mile long

[][][][][][][][][][][][]

To unload their livestock

Now a burden

What with no rain

So, no grass

Means having to feed

And the price of feed jumping

From $6 a round bale to $106

If you can get it

They say

What goes up

Must come down

But no one knows

When

Or where

Except the temperature

}}}}}}}

Is bound to drop

{{{{{{{

Before 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s Mason.
