Lines on the Summer of 2007


We were promised a summer that would be hotter than most
That we’d be burnt to a crisp and get browner than toast.
To help us save water, hosepipes would be banned
Obey or our backsides would also be tanned!!
The nation was worried if it all got too hot
But the TOGS wanted heat and cared not a jot.
Would Deadly resort to working in shorts?
Would the tarmac all melt in Lynn’s traffic reports?
But now four months later up to our armpits in mud
With no sign of the sun and the country in flood
Where are those people who predicted this heating disaster
Ah! They’ve all jetted off to places  like Madeira or Malta!
