Hot as Hades – A Quadrille

Hot as Hades

The temperature spiked
It was 110 degrees
A sweltering heat
and still no sign of a breeze  
Flies on the skin
sucking body sweat
Dogs panting loudly
Raindrops not a threat   
Overweight citizens
fanning themselves furiously
Too tired to speak and
Going nowhere dubiously 
Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing ©

Hosted by De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo)
The prompt was "Spiked"

A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 Words
