Weather Control

Today I caught myself
Praying for sunshine.
Remember the children's rhyme?
    "Rain, rain go away.
    Come again some other day."
Our best guess these days
Is that it's not a spirit
But a thing called "carbon footprint"
That affects the weather.
So a chant won't change the weather.
But a million people
Making choices about
When to drive or what to eat
Just might.
I wonder:
Do the ones who say,
"Global warming a a myth,"
Also pray for rain?
