Not Cool

The crickets in the yard’ll be
In need of Aspercreme by morning,
Judging by the frequency
At which they’re chafing their thigh-warning.
I don’t mind the noise they’re making–
Sounds like I’ve been telling jokes–
But knowing that I’ll wake up baking
Leaves me hoping it’s a hoax.
Crickets! Man, they’re funny folks.


One thought on “Not Cool

  1. Thank you for the cricket poem. There is a bit of hot humid weather here and the crickets are noticeably abundant as I dig in the garden. I say they convey good luck.
