Dear Mr Weather Man I just meant to say
That your endearing smile has brightened my day.
Despite your forecast of storms and threats of more rain
And the fact that the summer has passed us in vain,
Your bright voice, cheery face, and your fun, wacky ties
May one day encourage a meteorological temperature rise!
And dear Mr Weather Man I’d just like to add
That although you are jolly this weather is bad!
So with due haste I must ask you, if only I may,
Why don’t you do me a favour and blow the rain clouds away,
And rid us of the autumn and the winter weather and grot
And press a magic button for a sunny climate that is warm and is hot?!

Watch Out! A storm’s a brewing
And it’s picking up a pace
With hurricane force winds
Pushing forward in the race
To lash out across the mainland
To thrash with brutish force
And pound with might and magnitude
On its way and on its course
To drench the land in wetness
With floods that overflow
And damage trees and buildings
That stand where it might go
To disrupt the roads and railways
To cause havoc with the power
To bring misery and chaos
In the eye of its peak hour
And by the name of St Jude
This depressing storm will sear
On the feast day of its namesake
For lost causes in the year
So batten down the hatches
Weather out the storm inside
And be prepared for some disruption
Until it all subsides.
