It’s wake and bake

with a weekend reprieve.

Then back to the 90’s

and even 100 next week.


I think Mother Nature

might be confused.

Or she is angry

and letting us stew.


I moved from Florida

to get away from that heat.

Then I see my alligator planter

smiling at me.


“Get that smile off your face,

or I’ll throw you in the lake”.


Yes, the heat

is getting to me.

An attitude adjustment

is in need.


So, this weekend

I will regroup,

gathering strength

for next week’s soup.
