Weather Downcast.

A dry day,
plenty of sun shine
will brighten the sky.
A couple of clouds might fly by
later tonight and an odd spot might
There will be mild because the bitter is off
and some outbreaks, these fortunately
being moderate.
Tomorrow temperatures will climb back down,
outfaced by a cold affront.
On Saturday night we will all go out
in a blaze of glory.
Sunday will be dull,
so don't take out the punt
as it is advisable not to go even one mile
while the crocodiles hunt.
Sleet for Monday with hail and hearty
showers to bring the flowers out
but don't shout, or you'll bring about,
the skies downfall.

good work.
 — listen

An accurate and detailed commentary on the transient situations which constantly befuddle the mind in everyday life and threaten to boost the overall bottom-line of the cold-hearted institution that produces wellies.
