The sky is slowly melting as the sun blisters through,
The forecast is capping near one hundred twenty-two.
Birds stopped chirping, squirrels left without a clue,
Water trickles slowly, no trace of brilliant blue,
Oh such loving grandfather with inventions fresh and new,
Why were you so unaware of what global warming would do?

The Sun Set On A Late Night Channel

Where did you go, Duke?
You left without a goodbye.
I saw you last night
in old black and white,
on a silver screen 
you tipped your hat to me
left a word to the wise, 
a nod, and a grin --
When I saw you ride off
and the sunset 
on a late night channel
I looked for my grandfather's
chair, and in the memories
of a child, I saw the smile 
on his rugged face
knowing his hero
would ride again 
next Sunday.
