poetry friday

We’ve had beastly hot weather this week in Minnesota.  Thus, my poem for the day:


Hot Weather
by Dorothy Aldis


I never saw a puppy that
Wore a little streamer hat.

I never met a rabbit who
Had a dress of pink or blue.

I never saw a squirrel trail
Hair ribbons upon his tail.

And nobody has ever heard
Of shirt and panties on a bird!

Oh, why must I, however hot,
Wear EVERYTHING that they do not?
