Snow in the City

We look in anger at dirty snow pushed
Violently aside in piles on our curbs.
It was in the way, as all things are;
We needed a path to go where we go.

Flecking crystals that once
Were falling soft and free,
Black lung cough explodes from car exhausts.
A splash of color, a yellow blotch of urine
Is sorely unappreciated.
The snow is a victim
But something has to bear the blame.

It was beautiful to most the first time, many posts had attached photos of their yards and covered cars. By the third time it snowed here, I noticed the complaints were rolling in. Where did the appreciation of the beauty go? Guess what is in our forecast for 2/10/11? More snow! I better get ready to hear facebook friends vent!
