Mister Summer Man



Methinks I'll write about snow today It's a subject about which I've known Canadian by birth, so snow is no stranger As a kid many snowballs I've thrown But now that I'm old, damn snow's a pain Winter without snow would be grand Driving in snow, our lives are in jeopardy Perhaps a hospital visit unplanned Who was the first to say, “snow is beautiful” Snow has no redeeming factors Causes accidents and all kinds of bad stuff I'm the biggest damn snow detractor It has no good qualities that I can see You can't cook it, can't fry it, no use Just lies there causing a whole bunch of crap I've actually fallen on my caboose So the sooner it's spring the better I say And survive another winter season Not looking forward to the next three months I'm Mr. Summer Man, that's the reason © Jack Ellison 2013

    The nearest I get to snow is the buildup of ice in my freezer. I simply love our Mediterranean weather: never too hot; never too cold. Sending you warm smiles to chase at least some of the cold, Santa. Keep warm, Santa. Smoocherhuggies, Licia :-)

    If only snow could perch in pines, blanket those barren fields and rest it's self on mountain peeks divine alone... Then it and I would get along just fine! I'm with you Jack, summer baby all the way :-) Wonderful poem
