Ode To Summer

My Bad Summer Poem

Welcome to the final week of the Summertime Blog & reader Challenge. Let’s go out with a bang, you with me? Today we are talking about: 

Write a Bad Summer Poem (Or Good if you like that stuff)

 A Really Bad Summer Poem

Summer, Summer, Summertime

Should be sipping on a Corona…
But, not without the lime. 

Instead, I’m holed up trying to stay cool
Braless and maxing out the a/c
Glaring at the neighbors with the pool.

Hiding from the puffs of white floating in the air
Allergies making me sneeze my head off
The highlight of my day, dying my hair.   

Oh, Summer, Summer, hot and sticky summer
You used to mean so much to me
Now, all you are to me is a bummer.   

Now I get rashes from the heat all over my ass
When before I ran wild, not a care to be had.
I miss you, Summer, I miss the idea of you.
But, really I miss you fall…please hurry up and get here.   

The End (Thank God!)

    I like your poem! Isn’t if funny how our feelings about summer (or any other season) change as we get older? I could really live with that balmy, cool weather of fall forever and I’d be just happy!
