“Some Warm Thoughts”

With the temperature being very hot
And the humidity extra high
To find some pleasant entertainment
One really has to try.
 
Now every day is an adventure
So I turn to center stage
I try and do all the things I can
For people of my age.
 
I fixed breakfast on the sidewalk
With my tow eggs over light
Then I fried the strips of bacon
Until it was crispy to the bite.
 
Well the eggs ended they ended up scrambled
When I  tried to make them flip
I shoud have first fixed up the bacon
So the grease would have made them slide.
 
The likes are not impossible
With the heat we’ve had of late
Yet the city didn’t appreciate
The mess I did create.
 
Yes this venture was a wipeout
Outside cooking on my knees
Yet if the temperature continues to rise
I’ll be trying a grilled cheese!
