Summer, How I Hate Thee - Let Me Count The Ways
How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.
I hate thy heat and blazing sun and high humidity
My soul is drained, I wish you were out of sight
For it seems you never end and there is no respite.
I hate thee everyday
When I am soaked, and sweaty and stinky.
I hate thee loudly, as I whinge every night;
I hate thee totally, and I want thee to be gone.
I hate thee with a passion
In my old pj's, even though I loved you in my youth.
I hate thee every day you will not go away
I hate thee with every breath,
Grimaces, beads of sweat, with of all my being! --- and, if God choose,
I could love thee but only if my world was air-conditioned.
*With sincerest apologies to Elizabeth Browning
