The Joy of Living in the North

By Elton Camp

No greater joy can some people know
Than living in the land of ice and snow

They haven’t the slightest fear
Of a far-below-zero temperature

Snow will fall both day and night
To them, that’s the greatest delight

Even when forecasters say,
“Five more feet of snow today”

Why need they mind any more
With the snowplows galore!

Though the snow is all around
Not one time have they frowned

To me, there is no worse fate
Than living in a northern state

With snow piled to the window ledge
Only a rounded hump for the hedge

Give me whirling tornadoes any day
It’s in Alabama that I prefer to stay
