The heat, the heat, it has a beat

The heat is back!

Can we survive?

A heat index

of one-oh-five?

Yes, yes, I know

There's bigger news

To give our heated

Hearts the blues.

Yes, we could talk

Of pension plans

Of cheats and frauds

And Madi-gans

Or whether we might

Love or hate

A new Boss Daley

In this state.

Or ads on Wrigley's

Ancient clock

(Now that idea

is such a crock.)
