Global Warming

Global warming, "my ass"
It used to snow buckets
in February
a month of gauging supplies.
bringing them up the hill
on sleds

while we shook our
heads at the carnage of cars
slid off the hill
It’s not even Christmas

December no less
and the snow has come
and forced us to make
sure the larder is
full.

I hate winter.

I hear however, about this
whole global warming thing
that this isn’t happening.

Not yet.
Not here.

It's a seasonal thing, Roberta. It's called Winter. Here's what one child thinks:

Effects on Mother Nature
By Koko

Mother Nature is healthy,
And has beauty and is wealthy
But with Global Warming in the way,
It will take Mother Nature’s beauty away
It will become hot,
Like a steaming pot
Leaves will become brown,
Then everybody will frown
We need coolness,
Not hotness
But also happiness,
Please Mother Nature don’t come to an end
Because we’ll be your friend,
To help you become healthy and green again!!!

That's sweet!

At least all of this cold and snow has put me "stuck" on this hill with a boat load of cookie recipes and the time to do it.

~~~It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas~~~
