March is the Cruelest Month

They say it is spring;
been so twelve days straight.
But wait —
spring is warm sun, blue skies,
so why all these low level lies?
Started off fine
then went wrong wrong way way down down the line
58° 58° 40° 40° 32° 33° 29°
31° 32° 36° 37° 39°
Where’s spring’s upper 50s glam,
its in like a lion, its out like a lamb
instead of this foul weather lying lion scam
of snow and blow and ice not nice
and rain and pain and cold again?
Two days sun
the rest undone
in old cold below a sunless sky
and the icy gray constant constant clouds bring.
Believe me, I ain’t happy with this thing
which is why such a shitty song I sing.
