Weather Empathy

Written by: Gary Bovett

It's warm enough here
For short trousers
And a tee shirt
Driving the car with the roof down
Eating ice cream (don't tell the wife)
Long walks in the evening
A swim in the sea 
Working in the garden 
Sittingin the sun 
Drinking wine

It's hard to imagine
Somewhere else 
It's 10 below zero
Centegrade or Farenheit
And covered in snow
Wind chill factors
Prohibit swimming
For all those without fur
Driving is difficult 
With the roof on
Sitting by a warm fire
Drinking whiskey
