Summertime

Something must have happened

Until now – we’ve been told to stay indoors

Move around only for Necessary Journeys

Maybe those down at Whitehall saw the

Elevated mercury from the thermometers on the wall –

Reaction varied – from the reserved to just plain crazy

The kids are acting as if they’ve never felt heat before, but

If they think – everythings back to normal – they’re wrong

Museums, Stadia, Art Galleries – all working differently

Expect to keep a distance when you visit.
