I answered the question (which left me perplexed)
Eleven times Friday, and twenty the next;
The day after that, why, I truly lost count,
Never miss a local story.
But everyone’s asking; the query will mount.
Innocuous question, an innocent sort;
As temperature rises, our tempers grow short.
The answer (before you can even begin)
Is yes! The affirmative! Surely! You win!
So ask not this question, which waits like a trap:
“Is it hot enough for ya?”…I likely will snap!
