"a summer long ago"

the other day I was driving,
thinking about which drug the doctor still wasn't prescribing
to ease my daily aches & pains
[losses & gains]
and as I was driving,
the heat kept on thriving,
which would have left me a writhing mess on the floor,
except for
the sprinklers on the side of the road
(on in the late afternoon, but nobody cared)
sprayed everywhere other than the spot where I was.
If it wasn't for the one tiny drop that landed on my face,
I wouldn't have felt any at all.
Which just might have been better
because now I know just exactly what I'm missing.

Save water.  Duh.
