Heat Wave…

Flies

 

It is soooo hot,

It takes your breath away

When you dare

Stepping outside

And – worse! –

When you stop in the sun.

*

The air in your lungs

Seems to turn to burning embers;

Your eyes and nose and mouth

Dry out

Instantly…

And when you blink

You break out in sweat.

*

Plants wither within a few hours.

Outdoor animals hide.

The homeless seek shade where they can.

Only a few crazy sports fanatics

Dare to jog, run, bike, until…

Doubtlessly,

They will fall over.

*

It is so hot

That even the flies

– Insects, for goodness’ sake! –

Come and sit on the screen door

En masse!

Because there

It is cooler.

*

Weather guy says it will cool down.

Soon, he says,

In a couple of days…

He says it will be, then,

In the mid to upper 90’s…

What a great “cool wave!”

LOL…
