No one to tap

Smoke yet no fire; thunder yet no rain; Rain, he goes under; pain, not any gain; Claps, ah, now no one to tap; Slap, I feel there is some gap; Brain, but soon it drains, and fall - all in vain. Syllabic counter: 10/10/7/7/10 *A 3rd Place* in the following contest (judged on Nov. 29, 2020) Nov. 28, 2020 Out On A Lim Poetry Contest Contest Sponsor: Joseph May
