HOT JUNE DAYS

HOT JUNE DAYS

(tune: “Animal Crackers in My Soup”–to sing it!)

Sudden spreading algae blooms

Cover quiet pond lagoons,

Lily pads bursting out so far…

Cradling gentle lily stars!

Sweat drips down like salty rain

Making us shower all over again,

Grass grows quicker than we mow…

Professionally planted flowers show.

Rain clouds come to wet the ground,

Thunder and lightning slow us down

To enjoy a quiet book…

Or resting in a favorite nook!

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE JOB

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE JOB

(Or:  Daydreaming on the Run!)

 

Daydreaming on where things will be,

After productivity…

Is well underway,

After-all, we must stay

Apace with Corporate strategy!

There’ll be a gym somewhere,

And showers for folks to repair…

Mighty sweat spots

And undo leg knots,

Changing clothing for fresh air.

Of course, he envisions a nude,

In typical male attitude…

And he defends her

From an offender,

Who wants to do something crude.

Our hero looks but denies,

Doing any more offered than by eyes…

He gets her towels

Before the CCTV man howls

And he gets her out of danger, in disguise.

By this time, running out of points,

The rounds-keeper has hurting joints…

His meeting  a nude

At work is greatly skewed

Against it, daydreaming rarely disappoints.
