All That Hot Air Is Enough to Give Me Heat Stroke

“It’s not so much the heat as it is the humidity.”
There’s something about hot weather that brings out stupidity.
“Hot enough for you?”  As if I’d prefer a hundred and ten.
I’m gonna reach the boiling point if I hear that line again.
“You could fry an egg on the sidewalk” makes me hot under the collar.
To conclude that “It’s a steam bath out there” doesn’t take a Rhodes scholar.
Well, sit in the shade and sip lemonade till sundown from sunup,
Cuz the clichéd summer rhetoric is just heating up.
