Sombre Summer (Goodbye June)

It’s been a sombre summer, so far.

Grey clouds, disappointment and grief.

Madness and murder at every turn

June’s passing has been a relief.


The changes have been monumental

June’s finished, there’s no going back

We could sit on our heels, dissolve into salt

Fear our life is under attack.


We do have a say in how we live

Let’s use it, and not be shy

Now’s the time to say what we need

Rather than later, moan and cry


July can be a noisy month

August can be languid and long

Time to relax and have some fun

With friends and lovers and song


June is an ember in the grate

Summer’s hot whisper is here

Lets step into our future

Lets be fluid, joyful, Queer
