It’s so hot, the air is still,
And you can hardly breath.
The fans are going, windows are open,
But there is no breeze!
I try to cool off but nothing works,
Even my ice water doesn’t seem cold.
With my hair up, wearing shorts and tank top,
Trying to get cool, but nothing works.
There has got to be cool air, somewhere,
I get a thought to go outside,
Thinking to myself, that I should sleep out here,
Then all of a sudden...smack !!
Then you remember what summers really about,
The heat, bugs and quiet summer nights
To think about life...
