Rain is a recurring theme in poetry. Poets wax rhapsodic about the stuff - from the sentimental to the melancholy to quiet reflection to oneness with nature, et cetera, ad nauseum.

All I know is that rain sucks for auto racing - at least in the quantities decanted upon the heads of everyone in Sao Paulo, Brazil, by a set of what appeared to be very pissed-off clouds.

But poetry allegedly is good for the soul and promotes psychic healing, so we have some poorly-written haikus designed to... well, let's not pretend to any nobility here, these are designed to grab page views, not make you feel better about getting doused to the skin by a cloudburst. So go dry off and then come back and read.

Spent last year without a ride.
Now third in the points.

It’s the Month of May.
I honestly can’t wait for
The 500 Miles.
