The Man who Cried a River

There once was a man who cried a whole river,

And almost flooded the town.

This bitter blue coldness caused many a shiver,

And an unfortunate few were to drown.

 

But the man did not stop, nor think that he could,

For his heart had broken wide open.

The tears kept on flowing, exploding from where he stood,

And still not a word was spoken.

 

The townspeople were forced to move,

Their belongings began to rot.

They settled on a flat plains and swore to improve

Their lives on the newfound town spot.

 

Meanwhile the man whose tears tore them all

From their lives, families, and their homes,

Got over it, but when he did he saw

That he was all alone.
