- Contest ends on November 30, 10 pm.
Rainy day gospel by Daryl Jules*
the last of us here are dying
to hear the words of gospel
as they start dancing upon
your lips stained with fervor
our ears become ready for
news to fill our discussions
for days on end, as secrets
become undone in themselves
our mouths turn agape at
revelations, and our brains
buzz with excitement brought
by feasting on the forbidden.
and then we frown, as rain
begins to fall, stopping us
from munching upon the griefs
of the people who first left.
