Heatwaves

Good Friday for religion and for keeping the fridge full on because
I’m running at 30 degrees

The temp’
is only temporary according to the BBC whose weather is the best
and the best of me and you melts according to
the forecasts that we hear.

I’m working today so don’t listen to that Whitehall bunch who say we’re all on holiday
I’m not.

I prayed last night
for
rain to stop play
it didn’t work
so I must.

is this really a just system
or a symptom of something
more sinister?

going to write me a letter

Dear Minister
but that’s as far as I get
before they come to get me.
