Outside's a monotonous drizzle
With clouds of a boring, dull grizzle
I felt near to despair,
So I lit up a flare
And a sparkler to watch them all fizzle.

Dunno if you have 'sparklers' your side of the pond? They're a silvery-grey, bullrush-shaped blob on the end of a wire, which you light up and they burn with a bright, sparkling light as you wave them around. Great fun! Kids like me love them.

I'm immortal until proven otherwise
