Please rain

Dear people of Melbourne,
How are you today?
This heat wave is really
A bit of a pain.

Have you sweated in places
You’d rather not name?
Are you desperate,
Like me
For the sweet smell of rain?

It’s 41 degrees
Is it real? Is it true?
We don’t have air-con,
What about you?

We’ve run through the sprinkler,
Eaten icy poles all day,
Shut all the blinds,
Used a spray bottle for play.

Yes, summer is great
But I’m going insane
Enough of this heat wave
Come on now, please rain!
