Those in Bowling Green, Kentucky probably remember the heat on August 25. I am not a fan of summer for this reason and another: IRRITATING SUMMER BUGS!!! The cicadas are driving me nuts, and I'm ready for them to be gone! In response, I wrote a silly poem this morning. Maybe you agree. Enjoy the cool down, autumn's on the way!
TO THE DEATH OF SUMMER
Not many of God’s creatures do I despise As much as cicadas, mosquitoes, and zig-zagging flies. The noise, the bite, the endless flying Makes me yearn for summer’s dying. Not many pleasures can be found When they are swarming 'round and 'round. So to summer days, I bid 'adieu!' Its welcome death is just in view.
