... 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. ...
