Hi, fellows! Here's my latest. R
August 2022 Pome
AS THE DOG STAR RISES
"Dog Days bright and clear
Indicate a happy year;
But when accompanied by rain,
For better times, our hopes are vain."
-- Old Farmers' Almanac rhyme
Since great Augustus gave his name
To this hot month, give him the blame
For sweltering days and torrid nights
Of turns and tossings, bedbug-bites,
Of overheated lighting-bills,
Along with several other ills,
When gardens wither into brown,
And rich folks mosey out of town,
To mountains, or the cooling shore--
But I can't go there any more,
With fuel prices out of sight.
I think I may get drunk tonight.
