HOT WINDS BLOW

The morning cool

Temperature just right

As the day travels

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Within the dwelling

The sound of voices rise

Anger flies from the windows

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Your eyes aflame

Hot under the collar

Point your finger

Just for emphasis

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Remove your clothes

Nothing touches your skin

Sweat runs down your belly

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

The sun sets

End of day

Twilight in the desert

The Temperature drops

Hot winds sleep

Cool winds take over
