    The sweltering curse
    (In blistering verse)
    By: Mary Schmich


    Too hot, too hot
    Too hot to think
    Too hot, so hot
    I need a drink.


    A drink with ice
    To dry my sweat
    Just standing still
    I'm sopping wet.


    Too hot, too hot
    Too hot to work
    (A great excuse
    To nap and shirk.)


    I'll tell the boss
    I'm off today
    (Although it is
    Too hot to play.)


    Too hot to nap
    Too hot to eat
    Too hot to dress
    Too hot to tweet.


    It's hot too early
    Hot too late
    So many hot hot
    Things to hate:


    That sticky feel
    Behind the knees
    That icky dirty
    Ozone breeze.


    The stinky sweat
    Upon your feet
    The clammy ring
    Left on your seat.


    Your frizzy hair
    Your soggy bed
    The coming outage
    From ComEd.


    It's hotter here
    Than Phoenix dirt
    It's hotter than
    Ms. Monroe's skirt.


    It's Southern hot
    Oh no, it's worse
    At least the South
    Expects this curse.


    It's Houston hot!
    Miami heat!
    It's hotter than
    On Bourbon Street!


    So hot Chicago's
    Like a bog
    It's muggy, buggy
    Dense with fog.


    Too hot too hot
    To tell a joke
    How hot is that?
    Like I said, it is just too hot to think of a good "it's so hot" joke.


    So hot that
    Blago's hair might wilt
    But not so hot
    He'll melt with guilt.


    So very very
    Very hot
    So hot you smell
    The mold and rot.


    So hot it chafes
    Your inner legs
    So hot that chickens
    Lay fried eggs.


    So hot the air
    Could bake a peach
    Too hot to lie
    Out at the beach.


    Too hot to play
    A game of ball
    So hot you fondly
    Dream of fall.


    So hot you even
    Miss the snow
    Oh, where'd the bliss
    Of blizzards go?


    Too hot to walk
    Too hot to bike
    Too hot to jog
    Too hot to hike


    But as we swelter
    Whine and moan
    Let's not forget:
    This heat's on loan.


    As fast as we
    Can say July
    The summer will
    Have said goodbye.

    I don't want winter, or even fall. Just a *normal* summer. We are running about 10 degrees hotter here. (And that's in the shade!)

    I'm in the minority, I love the heat. Summer is my favorite time of the year. Having lived in the South 95% of my life I am used to the heat and the humidity. The only time I complain is when it is cold.
