Heat Delirium

Hail! Hail! Hail!

Hail to the gods of ice

and wind

and relief from this

sun-furnace heated air

Repent! Repent! Repent!

Throw yourself on their

air conditioned mercy

and pray at their cool water altar!

Beg for your salvation from

eternal body dripping heat;

surrender your soul to

the gods of cool!

Praise! Praise! Praise!

Praise that fresh wind they send

across your sweat-dampened face-

Oh glory to those merciful

gods of cool who

stir that sweltering

stagnant

humid

summer air so that you may breathe!

Hail those merciful gods of cool

who have decided to let you survive this

abysmally hot season!
