Something a little different.
Warning And Take Care! (Single word)
Freezing Rain is Dangerous To Walkers! (Rhymed Effort).
For those of you
Receiving this warning. Do
Exercise extreme caution!
Employ every precaution:
Zealously position your feet:
Inattentive moves can defeat
Needed safety whilst walking
Gaily down the street and talking.
Really, folks should engage
A careful step, at every stage.
Ice with cunning deception,
Needs incisive perception
In such circumstances.
So be well advised, instances
Are those far more injurious.
Nasty bruises to your derriere,
Give pain, you cannot share
Except with persons who
Really are familiar with you.
Often a salve, embrocation or
Unction, applied to parts sore:
Soothes and eases bruising
To a place - some find amusing-
Ousting the deep aching pain
Which walkers can easily attain
After slipping on an icy path.
Lastly, experience with Nature’s wrath,
Keeps many from taking a gamble
Even should they desire to ramble.
Remember icy paths we should fear,
Should freezing rain reappear!
(PS: Central Southern Ontario is presently
under a freezing rain warning.
Treacherous to say the least. )
