On a Pedestal

When it gets too hot
in this town there's not a lot
of comfort one can get
in the form of something wet.

I climb in to get my kicks
and escape the baking bricks
and I whistle at the chicks
and ignore the tuts and tsks.

They say this bath is for the birds,
but it's good enough for me!

  1. Fun write. It has a nice rhythm to it and a cantankerous quality that I enjoyed. :-)
