Jelly Beans
and Sardines

The town got its name
from the fact that it rained
a little each day
and the people complained.

They fussed and they griped,
and they whined and they grumbled.
"Just why must it rain everyday?"
they all mumbled.

Their hats were all floppy,
their clothes were quite droopy.
Their ball fields and parks and
their playgrounds were goopy.
