Perfect Summer Evening – at last!


The Gulf Stream has finally shifted North! Up and down the country winter coats are being put away and shorts are resurrected. Looks like a sausage shortage could be next…

We’ve had to wait until the 21st of July
To sit outside under a summer sky
Found garden chairs at the rear of the shed
Under an old car tyre and a rat that was dead
The neighbours joined us for a drink
Exposing flesh most of it pink
None of us could quite remember
This warm an evening – was it November?
I hardly drink so it was quite ironic
When I celebrated with a Gin and Tonic
We might be rash this evening it’s true
And attempt to find the barbecue!
