The Snow has Come

The snow has come, 
everything is at a standstill. 
Everything grinds to a halt except, 
for the little children sledging. 
A little snow and the schools shut, 
The nurseries close down, nowhere 
to send the children. Ah, Grandparents" 

Must get to work, big project on, alas 
when I get there they too have shut down. 
Car stuck in the snow; how do I get it out? 
No shovel! "Heh, can I borrow your shovel?" 
"Not mine it's his but sure you can use it." 
"Thanks for the use of your shovel!" 
"Ok, can you give me a shove?" "Sure!" 

Back hurts, slipped disk, oh no, not again. 
Go to hospital, no staff, where are they? 
"Didn't you know, we had a snowfall today, 
no one turned up. I am the only one here. 
Never mind love, if you sit in the waiting room 
I'll make sure someone will come and see you. 
It could take three or four days but hang in there!"
