Hotter Than Hades Haikus

We've been sweltering down here for a couple of weeks now in 100 degree plus temperatures. The local paper sponsored a haiku contest, and here's my favorite:

Forecast for Houston:

One hundred percent chance of

Cold margarita

The contest inspired me to write a few heat haiku of my own.

New grill is idle
No one will stand over it
Cold salad for dinner

Bea abandons her ball
Stop the presses y'all
Too hot to play fetch

Salvation is nigh
Houston hotter than Hades
Satan leaves town.

Share your heat-inspired haikus in the comments!

How hot here today?
Hot as the hinges of Hell--
Satan, close the door.

I love it!
100 in Houston? You have my deepest sympathies. I don't suppose the humidity went down?

No it didn't.

Sweatilly, yours,

Hot as Hell here too
Trampoline too black and hot
Fried Boy Feet smell bad!

Sun's teeth
included in kiss
Bleeding sweat today

102 in Florida
River looks inviting
jump into 72 degrees
