Peptalk With NativeDr, NII: "When The Rains Stop" - Captain Gunpeis' Lust For Utopia

When the rains stop,
The dirt gather
The mud shudder
The drowsy long thick droplets scatter.

When the rains stop,
The babys' cry travels further
The caring arm grows wearier
The voice of counsel travels smoother.

When the rains stop,
The jaase ts3 feels fairer
The waatse ts3 awakes to barter
The man-ts3 charges forward with no surrender.

When the rains stop,
The skys' smiles are tender
The suns ambience is healthier
The creatures praise is louder .

When the rains stop,
The forest frown in time
The hungry man hopes are bound to be fine
The gentleman now can sip the useful dregs of the palms wine.

When the rains stop,
Justice is pre-empted
Redress is attempted
Progress is uninterrupted.

When the rains stop,
The farmer and fisherman would bask in their tents
The goldsmith and armour bearer would wake to tasty foods scent
The transporter and the governor would embrace in consent.

When the rains stop,
The tops of trees flourish in baldness
The spoiler perishes in sadness
The truth relishes in gladness.

When the rains stop,
Captivity would be held captive and freedom would be the birthright of all.
