Chennai Rain

Rain in Chennai is very rare
As though the gods never cared

And when it finally lashed
Quite a lot it washed

The soot, the grime and the cloggy drains
Perhaps even many hearts

While the hearts started singing
The city was brimming

Water once so scarce
Began to give a scare

Did I hear him pray?
For the rains to go away!

It’s not hard to tell
Why the rains don’t befall

We aren’t ready for the downpour
And when we really are hope it creates wonder

Making the city greener, better, richer and happier!
