I start to freeze–
December always makes me sneeze.
My body shakes from nose to knees
And I begin to cough and wheeze.
Then January starts the year
With Polar Bears in bathing shorts
Madly running on the beach,
Diving into waters deep.
Now blizzard warnings warp my mind–
You better not delay.
Winds will howl all through the night
To drive the snow away
And bury cars in six-foot drifts
While all you do is watch and wait.
So open up your pantry doors
And see what lies inside.
Your larder looks a bit up-tight
It hasn’t food to last the night–
It’s just a case of fight or flight!
Get going while there still is light
