Random Thoughts Of A Disgruntled Snowman

Here I stand on the front lawn for all gawking passersby to see;
A convenient spectacle on which neighborhood dogs choose to pee!
I try to keep my cool (so to speak) as people make sport of me,
With carrot nose, silly hat, arms formed from branches of a tree!

A corncob pipe clamped between charcoal teeth shapes my face;
I feel so ridiculous lounging here staring off into distant space.
Its those little household terrors who made me who I am,
Then they leave me to thaw in the sun not giving a tinkers damn!

I would just as soon have remained anonymous in a snow drift by the fence,
But if I may say so, I'm a handsome dude - that said in my own defense!
Politically correct jerks call me a 'snow person' upsetting me so!
Dang it!  I'm a SNOWMAN and have been from generations ago!

Its cold out here but I reckon they dare not light a flame, lest,
It would hasten my doom which is so very tenuous at best!
So passersby, enjoy me whilst you can before my certain demise,
As I slowly sink to the ground liquefying right before your eyes!

    Hi, Bob H., with a nice and friendly smile I come back.... NO, No!!! not the Broncos. LOL..I cheered for them when they played against the Patriots. That's only cuz, I dislike the patriots with a passion... However, now the game is going to get real. Carolina Panthers are the best and Are going to spank the Broncos. LOL..Poor Payton Manning needs the win. And if for miracle they win. I guess, it was a fixed game. :) Have a good day. I love FOOTBALL :) I'm a Big Dallas Cowboys Fan. LINDA
