Hot or Not (VH)

Hot or Not

(The PM responds)

I thought you perceived me as hot.

Apparently, though, you do not.

My plan was to diet and run,

But neither of those turned out fun.


I’m seething; my temper is hot

And patience is not what I’ve got.

When people assert that the pope

Is hotter than me, I can’t cope.


I’m ill and my forehead is hot.

The doctor can’t say what I’ve got.

This ranking is making me sick.

I need a thermometer, quick.


Some parts of me, surely, are hot.

However, you claim I am not.

The truth, I’m afraid, must be told:

You people are callous and cold.
