In the Rain | A Poem by T. F. Rice

“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always
see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the
future less resolved than it will be.” –- Marcel Pagnol

raining cats and dogs
which is better than pet rocks
to be better is not always better off
the better part of a lifetime, sleeping

let sleeping dogs lay
which is better than teeth on the thigh
to be better is not always better off
the better part of a lifetime, eating

eat humble pie
which is better than to feed the ego
to be better is not always better off
the better part of a lifetime, speculating

there is no good time to speculate
especially in the rain
