Where’s Our Winter?
By Bill Lowe, Sterling
Is winter not here yet or did it already come and pass?
I know it’s too soon to be thinking ‘bout mowing my grass,
but I believe I just saw Jimmy Buffet walk by
holding a lime and a long-stem frosted glass?
According to my measuring tape and I know it don’t lie;
we got about as much snow this winter as we did last July.
You may think I’m exaggerating but I’m not,
I keep track, ‘cuz I’m “the pusher guy.”
I may have been pulling your leg about mowing the lawn,
but if the river weren’t iced over, I swear I’d be up before dawn
catching some of those Kings, Cohoes and Sockeyes
heading up the Kenai to spawn.
Please forgive me; I’m not trying to sound intentionally mean,
but let the northeast have the most snow they’ve ever seen;
the only place I want to be close to a Blizzard
is inside the Soldotna Dairy Queen.
