... Revisited, because, well, you know, it's Groundhog Day, and Revised, because ... well, think (HOPE) I made it better. LOL!

Feel sorry for poor ol' Punxsutawney Phil ... no wonder he's grouchy. I would be, too. =]

All snug in his burrow, the Groundhog:  was
sound asleep until the !! BIG HAND !! of the
Inner Circle reached in and hoisted him up
into the artificial sun made by media spots ---

Tell us, O-Wise-and-Wonderful-Prognosticator
-of-all-things-mysterious:  D o  you see your
shadow?  Can you say if there will be six more
weeks of Winter? 
Fools --- believe what you 

want.  He won't divulge his secrets.  Poor thing
can't see past his own nose or need for rest ---
Spring will get here soon enough.  Always has.
You don't need a Groundhog to tell you that. ...

(c) 2008, Revised, 2010, Karla Dorman (2/2)

Poor Punxsutawny Phil: no wonder the poor furry guy is so grouchy! I would too if I had my nice, long winter nap rudely interrupted just because some people want to know if spring is on the way or not! Damn weather lore! LOL AdorABle poem; well done, Karla! (yes, I did use the D-word! LOL)

Poor little ground hog. Maybe we'll see him at the Oscar's some year. He certainly deserves one. Flashy little designer outfit with a hot little bimbo in tow. Now that would be something. Cute poem.
