The Nutcracker

Bought advance tickets for The Nutcracker About two and a half months ago How was I to know on November 29th We'd get dumped on with a big bunch of snow The weather gods have conspired against me Coz before and after that day Temperatures been so incredibly warm Much like the merry month of May Must have upset those guys back when If so I do hereby apologize Sure felt their wrath, spent three long hours With fire shooting out of my eyes Next time won't buy tickets ahead of time I'll buy them on the day of the event And take my chances that it's not a sellout So my time is much better spent Is my frustration showing as I write this poem? So ticked off, what more can I say Don't want ever to spend that much time again Stopped dead on a freaking highway © Jack Ellison 2012

    What! You're not Santa? The reindeer on strike?... But I thought only Santa could bring me my wish... Great poetry... Nah, can't fool me... I know who you are... Santa!... And Cathie is Mrs. Clause! Can't fool me! LOL... I bet you were given the best seats in the house... Nothing's too good for Santa! Happy Holidays! LOL

    Lol, that is the winter time for you -unpredictable. I guess you had a wild time -hair raising and all :) Well Jack, one can't buy that experience. It may be worth the ticket. Just kidding.

    What made it all OK was the performance... absolutely stunning! Worth all the aggravation... I think! LOL No, it was stunning and the music of course, was absolutely beautiful and so familiar! Love Jack
