Poetry: “A humble request”

I wrote this on a particularly unpleasant winter day at work.

***~***~***~***

A humble request

 

Oh, weather gods please hear me out

I have a small request

 

This snow that you send falling down

It’s really all too much

 

I would accept a little bit

To cover up the ground

 

But now it’s piled up much too high

And it makes outside work hard

 

I know winter is far from through

That some snow is quite the norm

 

But could you be more timely

When you make it fall on us?

 

Alright, I guess I must admit

That the true fault’s not with you

 

It’s more to do with human’s work

And how they don’t clear the roads

 

Okay, I doth apologize

For taking up your time

 

But still I would not mind this much

A very early spring
