REDUNDANT SUMMER Oh for the warm days of summer That arrived year after year on cue To the cricket played on the village green When time after time the sun shone true Glory too the carnivals and flower shows Thatwere staged under skies so blue Then time marched on to the atomic era With the silicon chip and the long dole queue Nowmillions made redundant could follow In a leisurely outdoor pursue Only what happened to the weather Think, has the summer become redundant too?
