Inspired to meteorology and local weathermen.


Weatherspeak
(The Neal Estano Poem)

talk to me,
talk to me,
Mr. Meteorology.
tell me what
the weather's
planning for today.

hot, cold,
I don't care.
just give it
to me straight.
will there be snow?

or is it sun?
did you get
the icons right
on the 5-day 4-cast?

highs today
might depend
on where you're going
and how you've been.

but I don't care.

everyone hates
the weatherman.
but I've got
a secret
for you:

(I know the art
of weatherspeak, too)
