Death of a Snowman…


Surely he did die,

He didn’t melt, he didn’t cry,

Stuck with sticks of varying length,

Bled out he did, lost all his strength…


Even snowmen have enemies,

Their lives so short, one enemy the sun,

Could not kill the man made of snow,

Not with the usual use of a gun…


He did succumb,

To the suns warming rays,

His arms were found in the position raised,

He was apparently killed by another snowy chum…


Murder does occur, even in the snowman culture,

Even they do have in their society vultures,

He did try so very hard to avoid this death,

That day he did take his final breath…

Interesting poem here and I have a section in my new novel that I am editing where the killer goes after one man but misses and the snowman gets obliverated. Nice poem and funny.

Every snowman deserves a slow death. Just melting away, as we rejoice its departure...

A terrible tragedy - and I hear The Snowman Stalker has recently been spotted yet again - in New Jersey, as a matter of fact. Hmm. You're not carrying long sharp sticks in that jeep are you??!!

maybe we need to start a 'save the snowman' organization to raise money for this worthy cause

It won't be long before there is a major annihilation of the entire species of snowmen and their wives and children. I can't think of too many people who will grieve this tragedy. LOL

Not what I expected, an intriguing, mysterious write--well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
