It doesn’t take a weatherman…

It doesn’t take a weatherman…

An inch of pure snow
first of the season
promised by local news
more interested in clicks
than accuracy

Early January snow forgives
covers a multitude of sins
leaving the world fresh
beautiful as a crystal
ready for new growth

But the anger of the mob
raised tempers and temperatures
snow turns to dark rain
earth to mud

I might forgive
I will not forget
