Race of many drops
Sending in many dops
Many wins, some draws, many losses
Quite severe, filling the air, few pauses

A beautiful painting from a vehicle splash’s brush on a pedestrian’s canvas
An apology from a dry cloth on a warm body in a car, surely seems like arrogance
Strokes from the cloud gets farmers on a quest to feed the earth
Not only them but also their family, as the rain moves down, have to move up the mat
