Flood

Tears ran down
My face
Pooling beneath
My eyes
In mouth
Rained off my
Chin
Causing a downpour
In the city
The river rose
And overflowed
And ducks
Swam
Against red lights
While children
Had to be
Rowed to school
In yellow boats
Instead of busses
Finally I had no
More tears
And the river
Went down
Down like
My grief
To run
Like
The river
