The Morale of Weather Forecasters

A depression settled
over eastern, southern,
northern, western,
and central regions today
as weather forecasters everywhere
struck out for the umpteenth time
this season
and a bad hair day ensued.

Toast was drippy
coffee luke warm
and unseasonally bitter.

Socks will develop holes
later in the day
with ketchup on the lapel
towards evening.

Overnight we expect
restless turning
bad dreams and
a weepy start to the day tomorrow.

On the bright side
the planetary currents
had fun
behaving unexpectedly
and the sun shone
above it all.
