Seasonal Mayhem

Extreme weather brings on extreme behaviour

 

Across George Square bare

skin sizzling: not drowning

in high factors.

 

Here, summer lands

like a sledgehammer.

SURPRISE!

 

Drop everything, Glaswegians

desperately seeking brown

burn red.

 

Hospitals prepare

people swear – Never again.

How many degrees?

 

Blisters glisten

skin dries and peels

to squeals of pain.

 

Bra-less and free

goose-bumps, fever

just in time for autumn.

 

The End
