The rain was pelting down

Rotten fruit pelted at the performer

The hail was pelting down

As he stood at the corner


The pelting life can be ‘receive’ or ‘throw’

[What life will throw at you 

You just don’t know]

Soaked through or – aim – fire – go

A pelted man ready to fall

Held up by the stocks like a doll


He pelts his radiant defiant smile

At those who are active-pelting

A sarcastic grin – that says you can’t win

I’m here ’til you stop – I will not drop


All pelting must cease and a

new word for pelting must be found –

all pelting must go underground
