Falling On Me Bum



There must be something besides love Another good topic for a poem Perhaps I'll write about nature and stuff And the chilly winds a-blowin' October in Canada has that nip in the air That foretells of the season ahead For those that are into those winter sports Bet you're can't get it out of your head Well maybe when I was a very young'un Snow time meant barrels of fun But this guy's quite old and crotchety now Snow means falling on me bum Can't wait for spring just six months to go The months can't go by fast enough Perhaps I'll hibernate just like the bears Then wake up and brush of the dust Don't get me wrong, I'm Canadian eh! It's the law, I'm required to like winter They could lock me up, throw away the key It's also against the law to whimper (sniff!) © Jack Ellison 2013

    We're glad your son wasn't hurt in the car accident... We all drive Ford Focus (05,08,09), Poor Dragon can't fit in them... With winter we worry about the kids driving... So dragon flys ahead and fires the icy parts of the road while I stay home... and snuggle under a blanket while writting my poetry... Dragons quite a critic now a days... since he's featured in so many... The last 2 were about job interviews without him... What a grump bottom... he's become...LOL ... Silly Dragon!

    This was charming. I like the Fall & Spring the most. I wouldn't hibernate though, as tempting as that is. Why would you want to miss out on all those beautiful winter sunrises & sunsets? :) You're awesome, eh! =D

    aw haha Jackster you are a funny one and so creative! well, I'm with you, I like to hibernate. We don't get a lot of snow here, but when we do, it's beautiful and I'm thankful for a warm house to be in, I can just look outside and enjoy the scene, wrap in a blanket and drink some hot cocoa. Have fallen on me bum a couple time too when I go out lol and then when spring comes, it's a welcome reprieve. I enjoyed your poem xoxox
