40 days and 40 nights

It rained

for 40 days

and 40 nights,

and on the 39th day

I had gone out

and bought an umbrella.


40 days and 40 nights

it had rained,

and still there was

a hosepipe ban.


“40 days and 40 nights?

Why couldn’t it have just rained

in the night time?”

said the dog,

of the curious incident fame.


“40 days and 40 nights?

“In a row?” queried an itinerant crow.


And the deserted village

disappeared into the reservoir for a second time.
