On Frozen Pond

~~~ So icy blue and windy too, the pub looms across the lake One step forward three steps back, this nettlesome path forsake ~ So...Climbing upon the greenhouse roof, my drunken shortcut making The glass beneath me shattering proof, of every step I'm taking ~ I cut my knees, I scrape my shins, my pants a ragged mess A few more steps, I'll be across this frozen pond, I guess ~ A mighty crash, without a splash, the ice gives way too soon My belt hangs up upon a nail, I dangle above the room ~ I wave my arms, I kick my legs Hey! There's people under water! and I'm not even soaking wet, except I relieved my bladder ~~~
