Illusionists!

ILLUSIONISTS!

There! That'll teach you to jump to conclusions!
Life is all trickery, built on illusions
Did I hear you say ' Goodie! The weather is clearing!'
Not a wise statement when made in our hearing.
Oh yes, we allowed you a glimmer of hope.
We moved apart briefly, to prove you're a dope!
You folded your raincoat and put it away
Saying 'Now we are in for much brighter day.'
You set-out the picnic; it surely looks tasty!
But, look up above you! Agree you've been hasty!
We're moving together! Quite soon we will blend!
And then all your poor human hooplah will end!
You'll be soaked to the skin! Then we'll both drift away.
My friend and I wish you a wonderful day!

A more successful picnic here:

cool catch for sky watch! God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be..... Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Have a great weekend!

Your sky looks a bit like mine...and I thought you were on the other side.
The poem cheered me up a lot. Just what I need.
