The Blizzard of Two Thousand Ten December 12, 2010Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Poetry, Word Play, Writing & Writers.
While drinking Tang and eating applesauce
Purchased at the Seven-11 store
During the blizzard of two thousand ten
When even Kilimanjaro cried “No more!”
That was the year the turnpike closed
And scurvy ran rampant everywhere
We used water buffalo as taxis
And fragrant hand-sanitizer filled the air
As the snow piled higher and deeper
And spring remained hidden by winter’s wrath
We huddled and cuddled inside for warmth
As we discovered love’s blissful path
