Rain on a Work Day

Nothing is left we can possibly do
Then watch the rain pour over the roof’s edge.
All of the work that we tried to get through
Is just another thing I have to hedge.
More important things need my attention
Because they can only happen right now,
And please do not even try to mention
Conditions of my contractual vow.
My needs lie with the puddles being born,
And making sure they fill up completely.
It may leave your business feeling forlorn,
But it reflect the way fortune treats me.
I do not care for the way that you cry.
My concern comes from the tears in the sky.
