You can’t control weather at the Pole;
But Thule as a rule is always quite cool.
You’ll hate Scottish weather - it’s never really hottish,
And the climate in Chile you’ll always find chilly.
It’s true - Spanish snow can soon vanish;
But in Spain, rain stays (- mainly in the plain.)
Find mists in Turkey - they may be sometimes murky.
Seek the dampness of mireland - it’s famous in Ireland.
But your worst event may be to have spent Lent in Kent;
To have been cursed first with thirst in Amherst;
Or having to meet sleet in the street in Crete;
Or worse yet, to abet a debt in wet Tibet.
