End of Summer Mantra / Mantra pour la fin de l'été © Chant Wagner 2018
When you read "Always Summer"
You know it means the end of summer is near...
Since otherwise you wouldn't have to even say "always" and "summer" in the same breath
It's a mantra for the end of summer
Chez McDonald's and moralists alike
Or maybe a latter-day prophecy on global warming
Or an advertizing tag line with a deaf tone
Yet rejoice there is ice-cream
For you will always be able to surf on waves of soft serve
drizzled with caramel
When the sea will have frozen
And even if it can't freeze anymore
There'll be snow capped cups at your local golden arches
