Same Old Rhyme And Reason Tis Is The Season!

Now that there is no more holiday cheer for a good long time to come near. The cat will give you a good burst to keep you going until Easter starts showing.

You spit and you sputter,
Tossing the tree in the gutter.
Cleaning up the messes,
Before other stresses.

Up on the roof,
You slip and, poof!
Go for a tumble,
Grumble, grumble.

The bills come in.
Each day at your bin.
A nice neat pille,
Stretches a mile.

The car won't start,
Can't get to Walmart.
No nude crack today.
Oh the dismay.

Buried in snow,
Nothing will grow.
Oops your poor back,
Has a shoveling attack.

You go to explore,
Down comes more,
Making you stumble.
Grumble, grumble.

Smack goes your face.
A ground embrace.
Not very nice.
Damn that ice.

Things turn blue.
Don't go all ewww.
Fingers and toes,
Even your nose.

Layers of clothes,
Bring new lows.
Look rather fat,
At least to the cat.

Two months to go,
Until spring starts to show.
So cheer away.
Celebrate each day.

Hey, at least there is no nude crack attack at your shack. Unless you are into that. I'm not a judging cat. But with all those clothes you won't suffer such woes. So cheer in every ear, you could warm them up if you get near. Now my cheer has come to pass from my ever so cheery little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. Cleaning and clearing woes and all the chores
    To be done one already familiar with as before

  3. I'm still chuckling over the Walmart part! I really do try to avoid that place.
    Not counting Valentine's Day? I don't get my wife a card (because we both think that is a waste of paper) but I will get her flowers.

  7. After the snow
    outside I did go
    to fire up the tractor.
    As I started to plow
    the tractor died. And HOW!
    Now what do I do?
    I fear I am screwed.
    The snow is gonna stay.
    I don't want to shovel
    inside I will hovel
    and wait...Spring's three months away.

    1. Technically 2 months and 18 days
      But who is counting anyways
      I guess the tractor no longer wanted to go
      Sick of shoveling snow
      Maybe it can sit and kill some grass
      One less lawn mowing pass

  21. Another new header, at least to me
    Another cartoon I'd yet to see
    How this post made me roar
    Especially no nude crack at my door
    And all the green, buried with white
    Yep, my garden is out of sight
    But much to be said for moisture cold
    And what it will produce when it grows old
    Next summer's garden will hopefully be
    Better than what at Walmart you see
    Happy new year to you and your crew
    Happy tidings to you at your zoo!

  23. crack attack is something i wish i lacked
    as a younger man i seemed to have much more tact
    now i realize the social sin only after the fact
    sad to say i seem to be developing a knack
    can't blame ice or bills
    wish i could say for anyone it was a thrill
    of this conversation i should have said nil

  34. Your headers always rock. It took me several minutes before I scrolled down past this one =) Also, I'm a lucky duck because the snow isn't a problem here in Florida. However, the bills do still stretch for a mile around here, lol. Have a great weekend, Pat.
