"Raining again"

As the heavens open again
And local dogs bay at the sky
In their gardens as they call
To their unhearing pack-leaders
(Who walk on two legs and have thumbs)
To be let into the warm dry house,
It becomes clear that a new
(And only slightly facetious) method
For denoting rainfall speed
And/or quantity should be
Swimming-pools per second
(SPP for short) and based upon
The average volume of water in an
Olympic sized swimming pool.
