Seasonal Lake-Affective Disorder


Old Man, Put Down That Lake And Back Away Slowly

Removing winter’s frigid fluff,
That frozen-vapor-crystal stuff—
Result of Old Man Arctic’s puff—
Elicits often miff or huff.

Each year he threatens to be tough—
Though this year hasn’t been that rough.
But dare we chance to call his bluff?
One blast, and we’ll have had enough.
