I Interogated A Rain Drop

It has been very dry because rain did not come here for a long time this year So a bunch of us locals got together to discuss what the heck is going on around here So, we thought it would be just a wonderful idea to get it from the horses mouth and make it very clear So yesterday when it did rain finally after so long an absence I captured a drop of rain to question so that we all might hear Just why rain avoided us so long, had we done anything to make it mad or did it not like us for some reason and decide not to appear After several minutes of hard questions and not getting anywhere at all The drop of rain seemed to cower and be smaller, shrinking with interogation fear Well we thought we had it cornered as it kept shrinking with shame from each blast upon its ear Then all of a sudden something strange happened it just seemed to totally disappear We don't know where it could have gone, for we had placed it under all the hot lights so we could see it so very clear So we put out an wide sweeping APB with a picture of a tear
