Mother Nature finally allowed
Old Man Winter to come and call.
Playing in it you may have vowed
But there’s not enough for even one snowball.
The secret is that it’s slippery
Under that one thin snowy layer.
Mother Nature is at her trickery;
Stay indoors to be a player.
Visit Dragon City or hit the Subway to surf,
For sure you’ll be stuck to indoor turf.
Or try your hand at Trivia Crack,
To remember, just give your head a smack.
With Pet Rescue and Clash of Clans,
You might lose track of the clock’s hands.
Working Criminal Case you’ll search for leads
Of who is doing the dastardly deeds.
You could try your luck at 8 Ball Pool,
Or soon become a Farm Heroes fool.
Join the millions with Candy Crush Soda
Or take the bait for Candy Crush Saga.
My choice is always Words With Friends,
I’m a novice to others online.
You can send me invites until day’s end;
I will not play any of the time.
The lure of snow is hard to deny,
So search is on for boots and gloves;
It may be only grasshopper’s-knee high
But any snow is hard not to love.
