Winter Doesn't Have A Texas Address

By John I. Blair

Winter doesnít keep a home in Texas;
It just drifts down for the season,
Blows into town for a weekend gig,
Lending all the suntanned women an excuse
For the furs they buy at Neimanís
And the rangy men a rationale
For the snow tires on their SUVs.

Winter hereís on holiday;
But now and then it does transgress,
Becomes a wretched houseguest,
Strewing a trail of wrecks
On frozen Fort Worth freeways
And spoiling Dallas schedules
With inconvenient blizzards.
