Rain, Rain Go Away.

By Alexandra Queen

Rain, rain, go away
My toddler needs to get out and play.
The cat's outside and now wants in
My daughter's raising a terrible din.
Her "inside voice" is amped too loud
It's like these walls contain a crowd.
The dogs are snappy, my ass is red,
My husband's hiding from us all in bed.
The cat must shit, the child must shout,
The kid-cat-dogs must all go out.
Trapped inside by chill and mud,
Their fidgety noise makes my head thud.

It's such a dreary, cloudy pain
To be stuck inside because of rain.
