Poetry: “June Came So Soon” [a Tribute to summer from July 4, 2010]

The end of June has just elapsed

Can scarce believe it came so soon

Comfort’s gone

It’s so damned hot I could just swoon

Buy some booze

And drink too much and howl at the moon

Use a fan when you recline

Have some fun and hope your Credit Card is not declined

Go to the beach

And sing off-key feet burning in the dunes

July was nigh

The Fourth will soon be here

The summer heat won’t anon go by

And fireworks suffuse the sky

Global Warming’s here

So cooler pleasant days will die

Sunblock is needed

Or my skin will surely fry

Cookouts and picnics make summer a joy

Movies and ball games are like a toy

Shakespeare in the park

Discovery’s “Shark Week” after dark

When late September’s here

Summer will always disappear.
