Hot

It’s hot as hell out here.
Someone lit a fire under this sphere.
I’m boiling like a lobstah in a paht.
Man, that’s hot!

First World Problems

Growling and grumbling
Disturbing the peace
Loud and obnoxious a/c
It’s the sacrifice to beat the heat

Heatwave

Heat sings from pavement
Doused with mid-day summer sun
Flowers bask nearby
