Cool Prayer

OK, Who ordered the glass of water with the 100 Ton Ice Cube?
Cool Prayer

By Arley Steinhour 072111

Temperature, over a hundred

The Weather man did say

Everybody runs inside

AC on, another wonderful day

Wasn't always that way

And not too long ago

Heat of day did grow a crop

And help the sweat to flow

Some folk carried cooling

That looked like a hand held fan

Richer folk had electricity

And didn't wear out the hand

Grandma bought an electric

That swung from side to side

Sprinkled water on the gauze

Cooling temperature with pride

Today we close the shop down

Almost shutting down the town

Doesn't matter any way

When there's almost none around

The only thing that the heat did

Back before our house could be cooled

Was slow down a little what we did

Let the sweat flow until our feet were pooled

I think I like the new days

at my PC and staying cool

Not working up a sweat no more

You can't call me a Fool

I also liked the 'Good Old Days though

For them, thank you Lord.
