Rain, drains and brains
The Morning Inspection - Malinda
‘Rain, rain, go away, come again another day...’
so goes the old nursery rhyme. I’ve never understood it; as a child

delivered. Rain turns paddy fields into mirrors, gardens into pools,
roads and all pathways into rivers and rivulets respectively.

repeatedly eschewed practitioners of the art of political discourse
in preference to suicide bombers.
