Everybody talks about the weather
And I am part of everybody
So I should play along

We are told
The blizzard is coming
And that we should not expect ice cream

I wonder who will bring some of it
Onto the Senate floor
This time

I am told
By friends
That the snow is not so bad
Maybe an inch
Where feet are expected

Centimeters to meters
For the more reasonable

But I remember
Boxing Day 2010
When snow was expected
And came
And despite living in the
Best of the boroughs
I waited long before the streets were clear
And my garbage could again be collected

I am not so blithe about the weather
