What’s the rarest drop?

If I were a mere rain drop
What would have been my choice?
If I had some uniqueness,
I would rather rejoice.

The type that is commonest
Rises up from the sea
So that the company of salt
She may not have to see.

The type that is less common,
Rises up from rivers
To save from pollution her
Purity that was hers.

The type that’s quite rare is born
During a lightning storm;
Hydrogen and oxygen
Mix and a droplet form.

But the rarest of all is
A tear from God’s own eye
When He sees His commandments
Given a sly go by.

His tear I would, better, be,
And fall on dear George Bush
Inducing him to withdraw,
Unholy Iraq push.
