They planned their winter vacation,
But not this precipitation;
It’s dashing their hopes
Of hitting the slopes,
And causing their consternation.
Our congratulations and honorable mentions go to Joan Verdeal of Arvada Colorado, and Gary Martin of Essex, Iowa, for their entries.
The skiing would be great, they were told.
So they dressed for the snow and cold.
But out came the sun
And spoiled their fun.
You might say, a “snow job” they were sold!
From the city congestion we’re fleeing
To the mountains, where we can go skiing.
But the rain took the snow,
So we’ve no place to go.
And now boredom has conquered our being.
