~*~ Ode to Punxsutawney Phil ~ Happy Groundhogs Day ~*~ (Poem) – Reprise –

Let’s hear it for Punxsutawney Phil and old age folklore… He may have seen his shadow today, but he also been known to be wrong.

Poor little critter yanked from hibernation,

all he wanted was some more relaxation.

Onlookers stare in curiosity,  bundled up head to toe,

enjoying the festivities.

Phil makes an announcement, he truly wants to go…

“Jokes on you, you humans! You wake me up for this? —

I’m not a meteorologist, I simply can’t predict!”

He squirms with displeasure, no sunlight from above,

no shadow to be seen–

“Here’s to six more weeks of lousy weather! Don’t wake me up again!”

  1. This was fantastic Beckie!! We wake poor Phil up every year for crazy reasons, poor little guy can’t really predict much and the meteorologist definitely tend to not know much either. I think we should just let the poor baby sleep:)!
