An ode to the (potential) rain

In honour of the heatwave in Sydney, and the delirious weather forecasters (who keep forecasting rain that doesn't come,) I wrote a poem :

Rain, rain, come today
Take this awful heat away
Don't tease us so,
Get the mercury low
Leave Melbourne alone,
And come to my home.
Reports say respite soon,
But no luck, my worms shrivelled up like a prune
For rain, a chance?
I"m better off doing the dance.

Hmm, I think my brain has had a heat stroke.

Update: It worked! Rains came, and temps went from 35 to 22. Bliss again...
