It rides the jet stream,
Soaring through the atmosphere
At thirty thousand feet,
An arctic blast that turns the earth
From balmy warm to frozen waste…
And no one can stop it.
Down below, far below,
Fur-clad humans shiver
And pray for snowplows
And wonder: Did they cause this?
Is this arctic blast the result of
Could they have prevented this?
Is there anything they can do to
Save dear old Mother Nature?
The academic debate continues…
Until the power goes out
And they face an ugly truth:
Sometimes the old girl’s just a sadistic bitch.
