I wish it would rain all day
I want the patter-on-the-windowpane
I want the clatter-through-the-trees
I want the relentless howls to be heard and heeded
the cackling loose roof tiles and banging, rude doors.
I wish it would rain like she demands an audience
like no one can escape her roil
the people cower and the soil gurgles
drinks in glee
sheets, waves of water commanded to fall.
I wish it would rain.
Just a few big, carefree drops
splashing on my upturned face.

You can't possibly think that they care about us in a benevolent way." He was going to imply all human, until he remembered this human attempting to steal his food, and ended up falling down a ditch.
"The human has done us a good deed. Multiple good deeds, in fact. It's only appropriate to repay his kindness, even if it's just temporary."
"And you don't think he has intentionally started a war among us for his entertainment?"
"I think he is simply choosing who deserves his blessing."
"Reggie, there's no way that makes sense...

"Reggie, what if the tree huggers were right?"
"Right about what?"
"That the human will one day abandon us. That the human has no intention of keeping us fed, and did it purely for his entertainment."
"Please don't tell me you're falling for that bullshit too."
"I mean, I'm not supporting our enemy obviously, but what if...?"
Forget heaven or hell
Become people or shells
