An (In)Convenient Truth

poetry

Record breaking
Back breaking
Shoveling driveways
Walkways
Throughways
Doorways
No way can there be this much.
Seventy-plus inches of snow,
More on the way,
And spinal surgery by age thirty.
Global warming, my foot!
Here’s an inconvenient,
Or maybe convenient truth
Depending on how you look at it:
Al Gore is a liar.
