An Unwelcome Star
The time has come for me to take the stage
My adoring fans have been waiting for me for such a long time. They’re either anxious or dreading me. Let the desert concert begin.
First things first, I must turn off that blinding light, hard to do the show if the ambience isn’t right.
The dark curtain now hides the sun. A little bit of cool wouldn’t hurt this place, having the light gone and just a hint of wind.
People come out of their houses and begin to applaud.
They've endured the monotony of summer's searing heat, now I’m here to give them relief.
For now I am the star of the show, but I’m a devil in disguise. They welcome me now, but their memories are short, they forgot all about the wrath I entail.
First, drops of rare water hit the arid ground. Slowly at first, than I burst like a dam. The loving fans that adored me; tremble now in fear. I laugh at them and before they know it; my fury has appeared!
They panic and wonder what I’ll do next. I fill all their empty river beds and make them overflow. Floods hit the roads and houses alike. The roads are all washed away; the world has come to a halt. Sirens scream along the streets, driving in rain is a forgotten art. Not but an hour ago, they were worshipping me, thanking me for a rare desert song. Now they’re booing me, kicking me off the stage.
Okay, I know when I’m not wanted, so I’ll just blow away. But I’ll be back for my encore, when it will be I cannot tell, it’s really not up to me. Who am I, you ask? Why, I'm the famous desert monsoon, be a fan, don't ever forget who I am!
