Mary E. Moore

Measure for Measure

They say
it’s raining
cats and dogs,
as if that
made sense
and didn’t call up
some doggone
catastrophe.

Why not
it’s pouring
pints and pounds,
which dispenses
with drama
and confines
itself to
measured speech.

  1. It seems one cannot comment on the lst 2 poets- is it disabled in some fashion/- any how
    Brevity is the soul of wit here- good work- after doggone and catastrophe the last stanza kind of a let down.
