More moaning!

The climate has been gripped by indecision,
It can’t decide the temperature today.
The weathermen, with famous imprecision,
Have told us winter may have gone away.

I wrapped up warm, as yesterday was freezing,
But pretty soon I found I was too warm;
The clouds above then started cough-and-sneezing,
You can’t undo your coat in such a storm.

Tomorrow I will wear a lighter jacket
And find the world is wrapped in ice and snow.
A little waterproof will never hack it,
My nose and toes will start to ache and glow.

The English weather tends to be a bummer,
It surely can’t go on like this ’til summer!
