An Ode to the Snow

February 5, 2015 at 8:30 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

There’s no end in sight for the two feet currently on the ground

as the weather won’t warm up anytime soon to melt it away,

we must get used to the workout of climbing over mounds

because it appears that winter is here to stay.

In fact, we’ll probably be cold and frozen for the rest of our lives

as we wear through coats and hats and our “new” winter boots,

we’ll probably freeze until we cry and break out into hives

of course this is after we go crazy and pull our hair out by its roots.

Sure, the snow is pretty at first and even kind of fun

but then reality sets when you eventually have to go outside,

you’ll never move fast because you just cannot run

unless you want to slip, fall and bruise up your entire backside.

And now the novelty has worn off and we’re left with the rest

which consists of yellow patches, gross colors and black slush,

getting through this season puts even the heartiest of us to the test

because we mostly want to kick, scream and wallow in the mush.

Then we have ‘dibs’, which are dangerous and full of power

because everyone takes the tradition deeply to heart,

if you take someone else’s spot your night can quickly go sour

as people have been known to tear usurping vehicles completely apart.

Of course, there’s not much we can do other than bundle up and bear down

since we’re all frozen here in this perpetually snow-covered state,

seriously, even our mouths are stuck in a frown

but at least we can keep warm with all of our winter hate!
