The weather report for the day is all over the shop
The prediction for the kitchen is hot and steamy,
But when does that ever change, never I’ve heard
It bodes well with our tastebuds, spicy and creamy.
The main bedroom will see snow in the late hours
The temperature dropping below zero in the night,
Make sure you sleep in your woolies and ski boots
You’ll need them to manoeuvre out the door, it’s tight.
The children’s bedroom is set to drizzle for hours
Turning the floors to a slushy mud, to their delight,
Order of the day will be raincoat and tall gum boots
As they cook us their mud pies, eaten without a fight.
The bathroom, well I don’t know why I even bother
The weather forecast is always the same every day,
Always a touch on the damp side with lots of humidity
This is the optimum temperature, wouldn’t you say?
The enclosed sun room, now that’s so disappointing
Today’s forecast is overcast clouds, dark and grey,
I was hoping to sun bathe and relax with a good book
A forecast unusual for August, it’d better suit May.
The problem area in today’s forecast is torrential rain
A low is situated right over the top of the living room,
It’s due to sit for a few days, throwing water our way
And it’ll intensify with lightening, thundering booms.
Expect local flooding through the entire living room
If the sofas are covered in water, please do not sit,
As high tide nears, we will see waves over the sofas
Steer clear of this room until after the worst has hit.
I know you’ll be tempted to stand in the door way
But take care as it’s a severely dangerous situation,
Even the picture frames have sprouted waterfalls
And the light fittings are dripping with condensation.

My first love is poetry — it’s like a desperate need to write, to free up space in my mind, to escape the constant noise in my head. Most of the time the poems write themselves — I’m just the conduit holding the metaphorical pen.
