How did Adam ever live without AC’s benefits?
How did Eve survive without electric coolness?
Spoiled are we who live with climate catering care —
who manipulate the heat and chill with fingertips —
who make demands on thermostats so easily fulfilled.
Though the world may teeter with the thrusts of evil
that make yesterday’s corruption’s seem like child’s play
I appreciate that my Floridian days are cool
all because not long ago some men much wiser than myself
figured out a way to thwart the onslaught of the heat.
