The weather outside is frightful

Capris in January unsightful.

Inside the night is fitful

Might have to turn on the air conditioner

and let it blow, let it blow, let it blow.

Okay, it's a bad rhyme, and unsightly, too. It's been HOT here, for winter, and the condo has heated up to 77 degrees. It's been very windy, too, blowing all sorts of sneeze-makers around with the old leaves, so the windows have to stay closed. Makes for bad nights' sleep, what with those nightmares of walruses in capri pants and crop tops. And then the trouble falling back to sleep worrying about the plural of walrus. I had to chant this little mantra, "Walri don't shave legs, walri don't shave legs..."

Inflected Form(s): plural walrus or wal·rus·es
Etymology: Dutch, of Scandinavian origin; akin to Danish & Norwegian hvalros walrus, Old Norse rosmhvalr
