rain, rain...

Nursery rhymes - short story-poems usually recited for the entertainment of younger children

... go away...

The simple rhyming structure is easy to repeat, which makes nursery rhymes ideal for children who are just learning to speak.

... come again another day...

Unfortunately, children tend repeat what they hear even when they don't understand what they are saying.

... all the children want to play...

Sometimes, unchecked repetition can lead to misunderstanding and unintentional hurt feelings.

... so rain, rain...

Sometimes, children are just cruel.

... go away.

Storm clouds gather over-head. One of the children laughs. What's wrong, Freak? You scared? The small Xweetok doesn't respond, but instead looks skyward. We know about your little tricks, Rain, another kid snaps. You can't scare us with some clouds... The Xweetok lowers his gaze, eyes shining with suppressed rage. What about lightning? he hisses as a bolt flashes behind him. Scary enough for you? The thunder drowns out the children's screams.
