The Heat is on - all of July
After a spring that passed us by
This time we really can’t deny
That summer’s come!
Umbrellas can be put away
Sexy sunglasses hold sway
The ice cream parlour has its day
Life’s fun in sun!
But though the heat new joys inspires
At each effort one perspires
And lethargy subdues desires
It’s really HOT!
Yet joggers in the park still run
And sweat away their winter tum
While the lawns are strewn with more than one
Who’s had to stop.
Stupendous sales throughout July
Attract few punters on the fly
While the cafés draw in passers-by
For a cool beer
The Belgian praline stays inside
Its packaging; It has to hide
So no promotion from this guide
This time of year!
