Ninety on a test is great;
For weather, it’s too hot.
Everything is relative
And either good or not.

Ninety as a bowling score
Is really rather low.
Golfers would be mortified,
At least those going pro.

Ninety is what models weigh
To reap their dividends.
A ninety-pointer would be sweet
When playing “Words with Friends.”

Ninety dollars some might spend
To dine out on a meal.
Hotel rooms for ninety bucks
Would really be a steal.

Ninety’s sometimes wonderful
And other times, upsetting;
It’s ninety-plus degrees right now
And yuck! I’m really sweating!

    This was super creative and very different... I love the places you went with it, with simply talking about the number 90. Fun read! After working at a baseball stadium, selling cotton candy up and down the aisles I can say I've gotten used to heat... try walking (and dancing) up steps in 106 degree heat during a three hour game!

    Ninety out of a hundred is not enough for this. In the end you showed us that ninety aint' all bliss.
