Here's the proverb:

A drowning man is not troubled by rain.
Persian Proverb

Just write something based on that thought...prose is good too, by the way. Any forum'll do, too.

A drowning man is not troubled by rain,
may his saving grace be it washes away the pain.
Proverbial is the moth ever drawn to the flame ...
fascination and temptation become one in the same.

From where comes these word tides of wise men we quote?
Would the wisdom save the moth, keep the sinking man afloat?

An excellent challenge, considering the poem Sudhir posted, and JM's too!
Thanks, serene lady!
