In Support of Global Warming

The trees are stripping,

The temperature’s dipping,

My nose will soon be dripping.

Electric blanket’s on my bed;

Seeking a hat to warm my head,

I see even my bleeding hearts are dead.

It’s nearly time for “Trick or Treat.”

If we don’t have many on our street,

The leftover candy I’m bound to eat.

Soon it will be Turkey Day,

The first snowfall will come our way,

And I’ll be shoveling under skies of gray.

Why did summer have to end?

Couldn’t nature start a brand new trend,

Let global warming be our friend?

Year round temperature would then be

At least as high as sixty-three,

And we could spend 12 months sweater-free.

I have to admit that I do love my fall clothes!

Nice poem Eva-- I traded winters for earthquakes and even though I absolute hate them, winters are just too tough for me to try again. Here's hoping you have an easy winter.
Cheers, jj

Oh yeah, bring on global warming! Only let it be at least 73 - I'm a cold-blooded gal, and 63 would leave me shivering!

Hope you didn't work too hard in the Chamber of Horrors!

Lovely poem Eva! I do love the Fall and all of it's colorful crunching leaves underfoot, for so many reasons, but the older I get, the more I dread what follows it. I'm already suffering from that no sunlight disorder.

You know, the one that has such a perfectly matchy name thingy?? S.A.D. I think. Or, maybe that's the other thing I'm now afflicted with, Sagging Ass Disorder......
