Fall Doggerel



  1. Bite me.

    I hate fall. I hate winter even more.

    In the fall I get leaves that clog the gutter and have to be raked off the lawn. Then it rains. Constantly. With no clear sky in sight, and the leaf blower is about as useful as Justin Trudeau on a Wyoming coyote hunt. Then the leaf mold shows up, I get a snootfull of mold and my pan swells up and turns red. I sneeze and snorkel all over the place, and unless I triple the recommended dosage, the OTC meds don't help.

    In winter we get snow. No one knows how to drive in the snow, particularly on the beltway, so the number of rush hour accidents automatically doubles. It's also cold in the winter. I hate the cold. Should I try and shovel the snow, my asthma kicks in and I feel like my lungs are full of razor blades.

    1. I used to love fall… but the older I get, the more I agree with you. Right now I’m offsetting the hassle of fall with country rides through the leaves on the motorcycle. I could ride my life away doing that…
