Early Summer in New Zealand 2018
Summer two thousand and eighteen was very early this year
November and December two thousand and seventeen seared
Babies were very hot, no longer asleep, they were in tears
Evening meals were late, too hot to cook, men sat drinking their beer
Water restrictions early, odd/even hand-held hose only
All the humans that survived the heat should have won a trophy
Tar melted on the road, the bubbles popped as we drove slowly
February cyclone Gita arrived, power lines upreared
Falling tree broke water pipes, no water it all disappeared
March two thousand and eighteen then the rains came, autumn cosy.
