Cycling in the rain today

Instead of a thought experiment, I tried a Physics one.

For a change, it worked-

If I went a certain speed, the rain didn’t drench me.

Drug

I take a drug
That could put
Methamphetamine to shame
That’s more addictive than morphine
That can get you higher than heroin

It doesn’t make your hair fall
Or your teeth decay
It doesn’t make your liver rot
Or your kidneys stop
But it simulates your brain.

It inspires poetry
Better than weed
Manufactured by nature itself
No chemical reactions- just elemental
Between rainwater and earth
Petrichor.
