Cold Weather Rhyming





My poor friends shivering
Stuck on the East Coast
Snow up to your ears
Heaters on like working a military post


I wish you some relief
From your current subprime weather
Protect your sweet faces from the cold
Or you might look like patent leather







We suffered greatly too
My heat did turn on twice
I packed Indigo up in a thick jacket
Girlfriend looked like puffed rice


So here is to those good times
Flip flops on your feet
Now your toes are frozen
And your yard looks like wild wheat


Peace out.

Very cute. Puffed rice. Lol. That's exactly what litte puffer jackets make us look like. But Indigo would be cute puffed or unpuffed.
