Days grow shorter, the nights grow long,
Howling winds are cold and bitter.
Grab a blanket, stoke the fire!
And curl up with a fuzzy critter.
Recliner, blanket, good book, nice drink,
And add to that one purring cat.
On a cold, wet rainy winter’s day,
Can’t imagine anything better than that!
Winning life and living large!
That’s the way to go.
But it’s hard to get your freak on,
When it’s sixteen degrees below!
Christmas brings us lots of fun,
Even to scientists, just like me.
Why, I am so into the holidays,
I even decorated my Chemistree!
Their puppy woke me up for his nature’s call,
Outside a passing bus slowed down to stare,
Not at the pretty puppy, but most likely at me,
Dressed in only snow boots and underwear…
The winter wind screams through the trees,
While the icy rain comes pelting down.
Sammy is fast asleep with bed and blanket,
I’m in the car, driving to work downtown…
