The soak

Kayaking in the Klondyke.

It looks like the Summer
has gone and done a runner,
raining cats and dogs
and I’m setting in
logs for the fire,
I might be here for some time.

I think the reason the season’s
have all gone skew-whiff
if that’s the right word I
should use
they’re confused
I’m confused,

the planet’s being used up
we are being used up
the next thousand generations
will use us up
as the new fossil fuels.
