33 Degrees


It's 33 degrees outside

yet a man I spot

wears shorts & flip flops

talk about a contradiction

he must have been at the beach

when winter broke out

then it dawned on him

something was not quite right

perhaps he will go home now

and get a jacket

and some common sense

we've seen it all

we've been to Walmart.

Silly me I set off on the wrong foot at a tangent...

33 Degrees, Royal Arch, rolled up trouser leg and all that.

Nice poem D

I sense another poem arriving

Kids walk past my house every day on the way to school wearing no jackets, shirt untucked, undone at the neck, short skirts, no jumpers Brrrrrrr. Whilst I stand in my thermal long johns freezing my arse off. ;)

There is always one in every crowd who don't seem to feel the cold in quite the same way as us mere mortals. I knew a New Zealand lad living in the U.K who would wear shorts all the year round.
