A Snowball’s Chance



He was brought into being

On a cold winter’s night

Two warring young factions

And a friendly snow fight

He was cold and quite round

With a definite flair

His head full of snow

Instead of with hair

He flew through the sky

With an abundance of glee

Then splat it was over

On the side of a tree

He picked himself up

And patted his head

“No more of this!”

I think that he said

He played in the snow

But away from the boys

“Life is for living,

I’m not one of their toys!”

Seasons do change

At least here in the north

And soon it was warmer

The flowers burst forth

Everyone thought

Their snow friends had gone

Perhaps then next winter

Once again they’d be spawn

But our hero of note

Had just made a plan

He’d stay though the seasons

And come forth as a man

On a warm summer’s day

When the freezer is humming

Behind ice cubes and creams

He might just be slumming

So remember these words

As you shiver with cold

Our hero is near

He’ll never grow old
