Stab the helpless ground

Hurtling clumsily through dark layers of sky --
   Unwelcome residue of engorged, menacing clouds --
Gathering momentum, bulking up as they descend
   To stab the helpless ground with their frigid edges 

Few brave this nasty turn of events -- by which 
   Peaceful cityscapes are transformed into cold infernos
Of fiery ice -- to greet them, to acknowledge their
   Triumph over once-soft, once-pliant 'Mother Earth'...

Like bullets from b-b guns or darts from tasers
   They burrow into the earth, into snowdrifts, into
Snowbanks, slashing their way -- howling through the
   Clogged arteries of a grating metropolis, grinding her gears
