I remember when it rained

I remember when it rained During my childhood days That the rain would While we were sleeping rain through the porous roofs Of our twin mud huts I remember when it rained When I was still a young boy That the water would While my grandmother Was trying to prepare supper flood the fire place and put the fire off And we would go to sleep hungry I remember when it rained Back in the days That all our food, All our clothes Would be subjected To coffee colored stains Of water dripping through The porous roofs Of our twin mud huts I remember when it rained During my childhood days That we could not sleep We could not have food to fill our hunger We could not have Dry clothes to put on And I did not like the rain
