Poem for the Whiners

People in Lynden and Whatcom County generally have started whining about the unseasonably hot weather. This would not bother me were it not for the fact that I just spent months listening to folks go on about how cold and cloudy it was. It all brings to mind a poem that my late Grandpa Lott used to recite:

As a rule
man’s a fool

When it’s hot
he wants it cool

When it’s cool
he wants it hot

Always wanting
what is not

As a rule
man’s a fool
