Summer Happy

Never mind how thorny things get,
that this tricky year never ends,
I’m sorry for everyone in the north,
but I’m happy because it’s summer.

No more spring bite in the night,
no call to ever wear socks. 
Autumn is still a decade away.
I’m happy because it’s summer.

You may say it shouldn’t be so hot,
extreme weather is on the horizon.
Now I don’t want to think about that,
I’m happy because it’s summer.

The sun writes a story on my skin,
of beaches and freedom from work.
Maybe the letters spell melanoma,
but I’m happy because it’s summer.

It makes no sense, as all that has changed
is the temperature of the air,
but I will take any treasure I find.
I’m happy because it’s summer.
