perhaps today we should not hike

the clouds are holding court
hanging low as if for sport
perhaps some cloud celebrity’s
on trial for some indecency
embezzling some cirrus guy
the clouds are crowded in the sky
packed tight from end to end

they’re saying things that i don’t like
perhaps today we should not hike
they’re rumbling emphatically
their cheeks have greyed dramatically
perhaps they’ll cancel classes
until this cloud thing passes
and  skies are blue again
