Cold Snap in Wisconsin

 

People walk faster, 

No time for leisure. 

Is that guy shivering, 

Or having a seizure. 

 

Everyone's smoking, 

At least it looks so outside. 

Jack Frost is home here, 

Has no reason to hide. 

 

Scandinavians and Germans

Are hardy, we know. 

But even they get shivers

When they look out the window. 

 

Three layers of wool, one of fleece, 

One of down, 

Five layers of warmth, 

Just to drive across town. 

 

Twenty minutes before hand

Warm up the car,

This is Wisconsin

So we head to the bar. 

 

Corona be damned,

Or whatever the case is, 

Twenty minutes up here 

It will be put into stasis.
