"As the Wind Carves the Snow"
You know how I love those.
It started with a mouthful of snow
as the wind kept pushing the stuff in my face,
but this said,
the total accumulation in the city was unimpressive,
given past snowstorms we've had so far.
By midday though,
temperature dropped as the sun came out
and the wind pushed us around with a vengeance,
spinning around us like a mad dervish,
swallowing us and trying to rip our soul apart
as you gasped for air.
Visibility was another matter...
There were many car pile-ups in throughout the province.
One can only presume people didn't properly consider the weather conditions
and were driving as if nothing.
I know that a woman ran a red light at high speed
and could have run me over
if I had dashed to catch my light.
The names I called her,
I'll spare you the details.
I saw a guy running a red light and then,
and he made wild gestures at another driver that was trying to cross the boulevard
but hesitated when he saw that moron running the red light.
The moron sped away,
and me and that [prudent] driver looked at each other
and we shrugged...
I think we both shared the same opinion of that moron...
Some folks are a danger on these roads
and they should lose their license.
I've said it before and I'll say it again:
Driving is not a right, but a privilege.
As for those who live east of year,
