POEM - 13 GLOBAL WARNING

                                          

     It’s the hottest day of the year so far

       Take some water to quench your thirst.

     Use sun-block to protect your skin.

No wait! It’s Jan. the 1st.


It’s the hottest day of the year so far

Yes it’s true, but what does it mean?

There are lots of "hottest days of the year so far"

With some cooler ones in between.


It’s the hottest day of the year so far

But that doesn’t mean that it’s hot

They happen in Jan.

When you won’t need a fan

Some are hot and some are not.


So stop saying, "It’s the hottest day of the year so far."

Say, "It’s hotter than average today."

Cos then we might see

To a certain degree

That’s my pedantry on display
