Hot And Sweaty
This sonnet will be far from romantic,
It is unlikely to be inspiring,
But it should not be too sycophantic,
If anyone has bothered enquiring.
"Summer" and "Love" I think an odd pairing,
I find them mutually exclusive,
Hot, sweaty summers defy close sharing,
What they do is make me feel abusive!
"Love" is a topic I tend to avoid,
There is far too much fuss made about it,
I guess it keeps lots of poets employed,
All great geniuses, I don't doubt it.
All told, a popular competition,
Unsullied by my words of attrition.
