Haiku Poem – 古いエアコン

hot Winter air
office Summer heat
old air-con

(Scott Gardner)
ふゆ もうしょ ふるい エアコン ちよ の なつ

My office claims to have central air conditioning. However, I’m not too sure it works. The AC is very old. It looks like it is from the 60’s. There is a big brown metal box that hangs from the ceiling. It’s loud, clunky, and often needs repairs. The AC is constantly sucking air in from outside the building. So on humid days it feels like it makes the office hotter. On cold days it feels like nothing at all. In fact the building’s AC is so bad, several offices have installed window AC units. Oh and if you have to work on the weekend good luck. The building AC shuts off at 5PM every day and for the whole weekend.
