The rain falls on the just and the unjust.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Know a  tree by its fruits.
 
The rain just falls,
The unjust falls on the just
  fruits of the unknown tree.
 
My just enemy is my friend.
 
Falling friend, unknown rain.
The friend of my enemy knows
the rain of fruit.
 
Unknown tree, falling enemy.
Fruit of the just, tree friend.
 
Tree, rain, fruit, friend.

walking i catch the breezes

of city life

people strores pets

it all pleases

anyway i go

talking there are sneezes

winter allergies and angst

singing bursts and squeezes

all my loves into a ball

and throws it to the heights

I could reach beyond grace

and even Browning's heart

after teases from those

who don't get my drift

snow drift people drift

news drift speech drift

walking i catch the breezes

of city life

it all pleases

anyway i go
