Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day?

Shall I compare thee,
to a Summer’s day?

Only if you’re the worst.

A vile creature,

one welcoming living,
the devil’s basement,
as Summer has become,

I would never compare thee,
to a Summer’s day,
because it means I hate you.

For I truly hate Summer,
in every way.
