Heatwave

Office workers wilt in crumpled white shirts,

children giggle as they trundle past on wobbly bikes,

tourists walk with jackets tied round their waists,

obviously unprepared for the hot summer of a cold country,

joggers plow past, punishing themselves,

so they can look good by the pool in Majorca,

and the old dog pants as he stumbles behind his sprightly owner.
