mid-week photo op

air con, how I love you

let me count the ways
firstly, you keep me cool
on these rather fire’n’brimstoneesque days

you blur all the noise
of the neighbours on their balconies
and the sirens in the distance
to let the Magpie slumber peacefully

though you may be a bit of an eyesore
and add to our electric bill
as you perch like a drunken polar bear,
teetering on our window sill

our dog and cat both adore you
as do the humans of this house
and now that we have had you
there’s no way we’ll do without.

[with sincerest apologies for the less than half-rhymes and shoddy metre. think of it as poetic license]
