A Minor Suggestion

Dear Mother Nature

I love and I know you have your reasons

But I can’t help but ponder as to why you ef’d up the seasons

I mean, In the Winter, it’s 70 degrees

And we got a blizzard in the middle of spring

I have plans, things I wanna do

But for the past 4 months, I’ve been stuck inside because of you.

I’m not gonna be a kid for much longer,

But with you, why even bother?

You don’t listen. You just do what you choose

And all I see are severe weather warnings on the news.

All I have is one tiny request, and I know I might sound like a mess but,

Could you maybe take a chill pill?

Maybe something like a methocarbamol.

*Sigh* Why must you be so serious?

You’re always acting like you’re on your p…. uh… um…


I’m not saying I hate your work. I love surprises,

Well… at least when the occasion arises

But to be honest, I love everything you’ve done.

After all, you’re the only one

with the power to rain cats and dogs

Or even strike lightning to a moldy log.

I can’t tell you how to do your job because I’M JUST A TEENAGER WITH NO JOB.

I still love watching the sunset in summer

And watching the autumn leaves in the fall

But I really love you, most of all


Your Son
