Let's Make Thunder

Mini Valenzuela Kaczkurkin

"Let's make thunder," 
As the cloud makes thunder, 
Say the Pascola Dancers. 
Thunder brings the rain. 
So we understand 
What the Pascolas mean to do.
In imitation of rain, 
They're going to shower 
The spectators with bowls of water. 
So we who know, walk away, 
Before the Pascolas 
Make thunder as the clouds make Thunder.
