Meteors


Meteors never take showers;
They wouldn’t know what to do
With bars of fragrant body soap
And bottles of green shampoo.
 
Meteors never take showers,
And this is the reason why:
Besides their being so flighty,
They’re just a little bit shy.

lizards take shelter

longing for misty showers
