Hot Head & Cold Weather = Sore Skull (and butt-bone.... and arm.... and knee... and shoulder....and ego... and every other part of me)
Well, today was really quite a shock for me
Bc my small southern hometown was covered in ice for as far as the eye could see.
A place such as this doesn't get much snow,
The people here were amazed, it was hard for their excitement not to show.
The weather here isn't usually cold,
More like the Amazon, but that's a bit exaggerated, or so I'm told.
Yes, the weather here is in what seems to be a constant state of distress,
I mean, the heat is a given, but the cold can be hard to handle, even ill confess.
But, I love the cold, and I do love a good freeze,
I love a chill in the air and the wind blowing through the trees.
But even I had to admit that this day was a bit too much,
For I think Jack Frost got a little trigger happy when using his magic touch.
I say this mainly because of a fall,
Oh, yes, I did, and it felt as though I fell with the force of a brick wall.
As comical as I could make this seem,
The fact is it hurt so badly I wanted to scream.
But my ego was more damaged than my body, I hope,
Because I'll tell you now, I felt like the worlds biggest dope!
I can blame it on the truth that I'm not used to such conditions,
I could spit out many different styles of that particular rendition.
But the truth is I wasn't paying attention to anything in slightest,
And it apparent from that mistake that those moments aren't my brightest.
Plus, I'm not as young as I... well, you know.
So now when I get injured, it's on permanent displayed to show.
And with Lupus, my body already doesn't fight very fair,
But truthfully I should have just paid attention to my path, but I didn't seem to care.
So, this poem is pointless, and random in more ways than one,
But honestly I didn't have one thought planned out as to what I was going to write, not from the moment I've begun.
Usually I just start typing, and then my words start to connect to form something more,
But with any luck perhaps better things (from me) will soon be in-store.
Really this poem was about how cold it was today,
I know that may seem silly to you, but sometimes silly is rather okay.
May all who read this be warm, and cozy too,
And for heavens sake watch where you step, or a patch of ice will sneak up on you!
