After dark last night, while the snow was still falling,
I swept the walk and covered it with salt.
I don't want those nosy Parkers who live next door
banging on my door and
threatening to call City Hall
because it's dangerous. Sissies!
I should have left the walk alone.
It would have been fun
to peek through the curtains
and watch'em fall on their backsides.
I'm not going any where.
Let the snow cover'em;
the deeper, the better.
Icy steps discourage visitors.
