No Winter Olympics For Me


It looks like Seattle
out of my window
on the world
this morning.

Can hardly see
the water in the lake
for all the water
in the air.

Water.

Not Snow.

It only snows
in Denver
this year.

They are talking
about trying for
a Denver Olympics again
forgetting that
the voters turned it down
in 1976.

By my calculations
most of those folks
are still alive
and would still vote against it.

"Too many
damn people
here already.

Why invite more?"

They said,
voting with their ballot
and not their feet.

The old threat,
"If that happens
I will move to Australia."
did not apply
that time.

I think
that I will
open an
umbrella stand
if this rain
keeps up.
