South Side

Poet: Ken Jordan
Poem: South Side
Edited by: Sparkle Jordan
written: August/2014


Old Man
Winter,

Is
moving
slow

bringing

Coughs
and
Colds,

to
the South-side
of
Chicago -

Man!
I thought
this cat

was gone,

He' Back!

With 
a
Vengeance,

Icy and Bold -

I see him
through

the Arctic 
wind,

moving
slow

In 
the
Bitter cold,

On the
South side
of
Chicago -

So
Slyly 
dressed,

with 
a
wool scarf 

about
his neck,

old
trench coat,

and
leather boots.....

"Yeah,
that's him
alright!"

thinking 
he's
Camouflaged,

but,
I see 
through

his
disguise -
 
As he
wrecks
winter havoc,

on the
South side -

Wait!

now he's

raising 
his hand, 

as though 
to 
say hello....

Nope!

Instead,

he
made
It
Snow -

The 
whole scene 
has
changed,

with
ONE wave

of
his hand.

Folks are
cold

down 
to
their toes -

and
they

Shiver

and
Shake -

There are
Ice 
on shingles,

and
Frost 
on windows -

Old man
Winter

is in
his zone,

Polar zone -

Cars are
stranded, 

and

The Loop,
has
Shut down.

The entire 
City

is
at a
Standstill -

And
Old man 
Winter,

Fridgit 
as 
ever,

Is
moving
slow

in the
Bitter cold

on the 
South side
of
Chicago -
