“Three dog night,” is a phrase used by Australian Aborigines, meaning a night so cold you will need to take three dogs to bed with you to stay warm.
I have the three dogs, but there’s no three dog night in sight.
I feel like I’m on fire. It’s been 100 degrees outside
For days and days and days, relief has been denied
At three a.m. in the morning, there’s a 3% chance of rain
If we get a drop or two, it will feel like a hurricane
In the early hours of the morning, we take the dogs for a walk
They stay out until it’s 99, and inside they all flock
Once a day I wonder, what they did in the olden days
They didn’t get relief until 1902. That’s what Google says.
Air conditioning was invented. It surely was life changing
God decided if we cooled off, we might be more engaging
I guess I should stop complaining as I work on my laptop.
In my cooled down tiny home, where 3 dog naps don’t stop.
