ICE AND FIRE

Three simple words
sum a month.
Hot water heater
broke three measly
days past warranty.
Cold showers stink.
New fangled furnace
did not execute.
Cold nose drips.
Need more tissues.
Use napkins instead.
Warm maple floors
frozen auburn strips.
Wait, wait, wait-
Repairman en route.
Buy aloe tissues.
Wait, wait, wait –
Part on backorder.
Really feel warm.
Just a hot-flash.
Wait, wait, wait,-
Repairman coming, soon-
Early in morning-
Maybe late afternoon-
Fifteen minutes away.
Voila, thawed out,
booked tropical vacation.

    And the month isn’t even half over yet! Wonder what else is in store for you this month? Maybe warm cider, hot pizza, good friends…

    all good things to hope for! Are you coming over for some pizza with extra cheese and mushrooms? Or some chinese food, cashew chicken perhaps? Mmmm, I’m hungry 🙂
