Oklahoma, August 2011

With August came hot breeze,
Temps above 110;
Heat, defoliated trees,
Been worse?
Don't know when.
The grass is dead,
No need to mow.
Air so dry,
The Rooster can't crow.
Today a darkened sky,
Splotches, like grey stain.
My recurring thoughts are why?
It does not rain.

    Al Gore has an opinion. Otherwise, the sun's acting up. Your poem describes how bleak it is so well.
