Some like it hot

Some like it hot Some like it cold When it's cold in Chicago My bones feel old Some like it cold Some like it hot When it's cold in Chicago A bowl of soup hits the spot Some like Illinois Some do not With the new legislation The state's going to pot Some like America Some do not Between Trump and Ilhan Omer The whole country's distraught Some like poets Some do not I can only tell you this: They give it all that they've got

Poets do indeed, "give it all they've got." Well said.

A lightweight, frolicking verse that delivers depth via a fun, playful tone. A good time read from Chicago to poet attributes and in-between. Poetry hugs .... CayCay

Good one, GW.I am not distraught! I don't listen to the crapola news anymore. Keeps me sane. This country has always had differences. That's how it is...but it is more Jezebelian infested than ever. You know Torah, so you will understand. Chicago is as you said. Finally, HaShem runs the world, not man. PR

Of course, Hashem runs the world, but I think we're keeping Him up late at nights these days. LOL. :) gw

This is awesome, my dear sarcastic Wolf. It's settled: next time I'm going to Illinois with hottest alcoholic beverages on me)

"the whole country is distraught" - I loved this part the BEST for I really do believe that the whole country is distraught until I talk to the hillbillies who are not distraught. Do not ask for their names. I love political poems when I agree with them. So GREAT poem!

I got away with a bit of exaggeration here. There's a whole slice of America that's not distraught. :) gw

I saw on the news there's a heat wave in Chicago - would you rather have that, or the coldest day of winter? (no judgement, just curious)

Neither!! But if I absolutely had to choose, I'd take the cold.
