THE FLOOD

I wrote this in a Welsh poetry form called a Rhupunt.

Animals walk in, two by two

Every size and shape and hue

Nobody thought a floating zoo

A very smart idea.

 

Lioness lies in peace with faun

Crocodile heeds to Gabriel’s horn

Precedent of a new Earth dawn

Carnivore lies with deer.

 

Anteater, elephant, rabbit and moose

Caribou, ocelot, camel and goose

Enemies call a needful truce

Trust lies in the seer.

 

Heretics scoffing, laughing loud

Avidly swilling, luckless crowd

Stupidly blind to first dark cloud

Voices snidely jeer.

 

Disbelief turns to stuttering doubt

Splattering raindrops break the drought

Family pleas to friends about

Skeptic, unblessed ear.

 

Tumbling Earthward endless rain

Mumbling tardy prayers in vain

Opportune offers nayed again

Perjuring, not to hear.

 

Naysayer heathens drown with tide

Peaceable innocents yet abide

Purified future, waters ride

Skies becoming clear.
