we cast our votes
amid the lies flinging
fear slinging torrent
and the rain fell
bleak teller of fortune

we watched the count
amid hope sliding
faith sinking avalanche
and the rain fell
gentle persistent soundtrack

we heard the echoes
amid our own stunned
speechless shock
and the rain fell
as if nothing at all had changed
