JulyPoWriMo 6

The days sadly tending to molasses 
how hot will it get before the warnings
accustomed to deteriorating
conditions as the families walk by
the closed window with their babies and pets
sometimes only their unheard huffing breath
who decides the weather is right to run
an unnecessary option at best
not that the HVAC is our salvation
it only runs until it needs repair
not unlike this our gutted broken world
we tried to make uninhabitable
despite our worst efforts and unchecked greed
if heat is the goal then we did succeed
