"Dashing through the snow"--or not :(, #2

Revised version of poem first posted here. (To the tune of "Jingle Bells.")

[ ¶ ]

Dashing—not!—through snow

Fast one cannot go

Bundled without grace

Snow piles in my face

Managed not to flip

In the slush’s grip

Where did all buses go while I did slide and slip?


"Ding-dong" bells, subway smells

"Watch the closing doors!"

Subway station’s slick with slush

I wish they'd clean the floors

Mayor we curse--it's the worst

clean-up ever seen

New York City goes berserk

'cause snow-plows are unseen :(

[ ¶ ]

What a mess!

[ ¶ ]

And worse. :( A death in the family is bad enough, but a possibly-preventable death is even sadder.
