June to September (Count on It)
Summer mornings here in Central Florida are
real mercury risers,
by 9:00 AM thoughts of air conditioning take
over center stage.
Die hard golfers don layers of sun screen and
eye shading visors
at the break of dawn so the shining sun they
just might assuage.
Construction workers, especially roofers,
are melting in the heat
that knows no mercy for working men
laboring in the sun's rays.
Like the above mentioned golfers, they'll
press on, no retreat
knowing full well that around 4:00 PM their
begging for rain always pays.
