Jack Frost and his Flakes

In the still of the night

The landscape transformed

As Jack Frost and his Flakes

Became a winter storm

~

They danced and they sang

A finely choreographed number

Chilling the air

As the town folks did slumber

~

Jack and his Flakes

Reached far and wide

Freezing everything, they could

Leaving nowhere to hide

~

But the reception received

The very next morning

Was a chorus of curses

And massive traffic jams forming

~

So, Jack gathered his Flakes

And gave a pep talk

“These folks don’t understand.

They don’t know what they want!

~

So, tonight we’ll go bigger;

More ice, snow, and sleet.

We’ll pile it higher

Tonight, while they sleep!”

~

The very next morning

All was covered in ice

As the town folks cursed more

That the storm had hit twice

~

But Jack brushed it off

As folks not yet ready

“I’ll take my Flakes up North

Where the reception is friendly.”

~

To ski country, they went

To spread snow upon the slopes

And in the morning, they heard

Cheers of thanks from mountain folk

Thanks for stopping by!
