Ocean grey skies clouded noon day,
Typical tropical rains on their way.
Bus a lime by the corner with you,
(bus a lime – to hang out with friends)
Here comes the downpour doo doo.
(doo doo or doux doux – my dear, darling)
Pelting rain trow mango with a splash,
(trow – throw, toss)
Like mixing up chutney in a calabash.
Soak up crowds shake umbrella vases,
(soak up – dunked in water or liquids)
Sheltering precious pickaninny prizes.
(pickaninny – small children)
Undaunted by deluge umbrella pieces,
They mashup craft impromptu devices.
Wavin’ buss up umbrella hats overhead,
(buss up – torn, broken in pieces)
Dancing home to their dry warm bed.
