Ode to you my humming machine,
though your noise I could do without.
After a while it drums in my ears,
but you’re worth it, I have no doubt.
You wrap me in your cocoon of cool.
Protecting me from the lethal heat.
You run so diligent all year long.
You allow me to sleep so sweet.
I feel locked in a synthetic ice box,
and I miss a pleasant breeze.
I long for refreshing, clean air
blowing ever so gently in the trees.
For many more weeks you’ll do your job,
and I rely on you so great.
Without you I’d give up for sure,
but cabin fever is making me irate.
