Limerick Ode To AC

Today is the first day of Air Conditioning Appreciation days. (July 3 to August 15)

Limerick Ode To AC
By Madeleine Begun Kane

How I long to be sweaty-skin-free.
“Make it cool!” is my summertime plea.
Humidity, heat
Make me drip with defeat.
Yes indeed, I’m a fan of AC.

    Walgreen’s has cheap circulating pole fans that suck up waay less voltage than AC. “God has been replaced, as he has all over the West, w/respectability & air conditioning.”~Imamu Amiri Baraka [make that “replaced by science”…”Science is increasingly answering questions that used to be the province of religion.”~Stephen Hawking. “It was luxuries like air conditioning that brought down the Roman Empire. With air conditioning, their windows were shut & they couldn’t hear the barbarians coming.”~~Garrison Keillor

    Since I’m wandering in the quotes section, here’s one that races thru my mind when basking in your limericks…packed tight as sardines…no leftover words or dispensables…concise & precise w/a coat of clever & a sprinkle of sassy: “Remember the waterfront shack w/the sign “Fresh Fish Sold Here”? Of course it’s fresh, we’re on the ocean. Of course it’s for sale, we’re not giving it away. Of course it’s here, otherwise the sign would be someplace else. The final sign: “Fish.”~~Peggy Noonan
