A Winter Poem, by Juli Hoffman
T’was 10 shopping days before Christmas,
The roads were all white,
With at LEAST 6 inches of snow,
And not a snow plow in sight!
Other States might close down,
Going out would be crazy!
But not in dear Michigan,
Stay indoors? That’s just lazy.
Get your butt into work,
And you better NOT be late!
You can leave the house early, REALLY early,
Your “free time” can wait.
It’s not a big deal,
Just follow the wheel ruts,
Like a old-fashion wagon train…
Oh, let’s face it. We’re all nuts!!!
Our tires are slipping,
The roads are a mess!
But the shoppers are still shopping.
Why? Well..that’s anyone’s guess!!!
They come out in droves,
And complain about lines.
Really? You could have stayed HOME,
With a large glass of wine!
Don’t get me wrong,
I went out today, too.
Chipped the ice off of my windshield,
No gloves. Fingers blue.
But sometimes I wonder,
At the end of the day,
Is it all really worth it?
Hmm… I do like the pay…
So Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
Happy Hanukkah! Good Night!
While you’re out and about shopping,
Please try not to fight.
Take your time and drive slowly.
Wear your boots and thick socks.
Leave your “tude” at the doorway,
Or else you can “KICK ROCKS!”
