August 1st

Today is the first day of August.
Not a cloud in the sky
and the temperature's high,
in the nineties they say.

Not a day for much work.
I made Uxbridge by ten,
had a meeting, and then
changed my plans for the day.
Instead of a tube to the centre of town,
I drove my car home, had a drink and cooled down.

The telephone may have its drawbacks,
but at least you can sit
with an iced 'gin and it'
and do business that way.

How I wish!!
