Summer In December In
Summer does not begin
on the first day of June
but every drop of the cold by then,
will be virtually wind strewn.
But if you want to see the stars
on hot summer nights
then you should stay away from cars
and the bright city lights.
July will just lie
on it own calendar page
until June is good and ready
to leave center stage
then there will be highs in the high 80ís
and waves will be on the beach.
And lots of pretty lovely ladies
who will appear just out of reach.
August will probably dog us
with gusts of hot air
but unlike April it will not fog us
with more than our share
of liquid precipitation.
But Augie Donatelli
did not sing like Corelli
even in August the month
But Augie probably witnessed a lot of flubs
by the hapless playing Cubs
in trying to execute a successful bunt. †
So now comes September
and the folding of the Cubs
and fans who will not remember
what drinks they were holding in pubs
when the Cubs were eliminated.
So you donít have to be a fake seer
reading a bunch of tea leaves
or be drunk from wine and beer
to predict that a World Series
victory will be enthusiastically celebrated
not by the fans Cubs
but by fans who are intoxicated
and loyal to other clubs
partying in pubs
