Getting deeper and deeper
Into Autumn leaves.

Rain's floods, streets awash
Monsoon season becoming
Britain's climate change.

check on your strong friends
they are the ones who were there
the ones you count on

missing old faces
different time zones, tired
can't wait till i'm back

Britain's rainstorms cause mayhem
Stoking up the fire.

Fingertips grasped by small hands
Hot chocolate waits.
