The vengeful fiery sun
Has once again its purpose overdone
His pride to brighten our days has become solipsistic
And the result will be actinic –

Skin Cancer.

Mr. Sun please, take it easy
So that the day may progress ideally
Can’t you see your ego is causing heat strokes among the weak?
Your zealousness is making us downbeat

And while your services are in demand
Like anything, too much is detrimental
We hope this discussion you do not misunderstand
We know you can be temperamental

Your presence is like the timpani
Too much can be overbearing
But I see today your symphony
Will be unsparing

I see you will not yield despite my requisitioning,
That said, I’m glad I have Air Conditioning.
