December Sunburn


air was cool, sky was blue.
sun was high in solitude.
when am I gonna ever learn.
another December sunburn.

southern half of the earth.
where Peruvians and Aussies lurk.
every year the same ole thing.
the sunburns December brings.

leaves fell many months ago.
supposed to be white with snow.
Christmas lights turn white to red.
just like the top of my head.

long sleeves and floppy hats.
republicans and democrats.
all who have light shades of skin.
regardless of the month we're in.

air was cool, sky was blue.
sun was high in solitude.
when am I gonna ever learn.
another December sunburn.
