A short poem made in response to the 01/13/2021 Writer's Cramp Prompt.
Fool in the rain

All love but in vain

And when he does deign

He's cast aside, slain



A simple rook

Caught in a nook

In its clutches, gold hook

A gift from a crook



She’s up to no good

And she’s misunderstood

Without lifting her hood

She’s left to the wood



When the two meet

Their encounter, not sweet

She does try to cheat

When he leaves the greet



He follows her long

Entranced by her song

She does him great wrong

Scarring lifelong



And so his life ends

The two never friends

With her rook, she sends

Silver and gold so it tends



To harken her words

To bring her more birds

To lead her forwards

To feed her in thirds



When the body is found

With evidence all around

They follow bird sound

And uncover her mound



They cause her great pain

Much more than sprain

Her feeble attempts vain

She's the fool in the rain
