Rain Kings
The two raindrops roll down
gently, yet carefully
as they approach each other
they seem as if they're greeting

Slowly plummeting to Earth
they speak within harmony
"We are the two kings,
who rule you now!"

Beautiful as they are
they discuss for long ahead
to either leave all in peace
or to leave all dead

Talking for so long
they forget what is happening
"What do we do now?"
"I thought you knew everything!"

The two kings now,
Holy and all
Hit the ground with a splatter
Now being dead with the fall
