There's An Air Pollution Watch of Level Orange Today

By John I. Blair

There's an air pollution watch
Of level orange today
How colorful it sounds,
How musical.
I can almost sing the words
As I drive along
With curdy lungs and itchy eyes.

I politely squelch a cough
And squint at the horizon all around,
Tinted softly brown,
Confident the sunset will surpass
All reasonable expectations
With glowing crimson skies
As the odorous night approaches.

2004 John I. Blair

(Dedicated to my Congressman)
