WEATHER REPORT (from All GUMS BLAZING)


The air is cool today,

There’s jazz and bounce

And swing in it;

Wind instrument,

It saxophones my skin

As I noodle into school.


The air is wearing shades today,

Its breeze is bunking off,

Slinking out our school window

To tussle, doss, advance;

Who cares if those grades aren’t high?

It sure knows how to dance.


The air’s drum brushes swirl,

tuned in to the current -

A super cool low-pressure band

That’s set to tour the world.
