It’s Grim Out There

Form: Sicilian Octave

Ill-mannered weather insulting the skin
Echoes of rudeness the forecaster’s smile
A beautiful day for taking it in
The stench of sun oil and barbecue, vile
Assaulting the untouched senses within
To leave the throat to savour on the bile
So don’t be surprised at me staying in
I’m escaping the summer for awhile
