Winter followed summer
of rage and discontent
blazing hate spread as virus
in pompous talk and rant.

Winter followed summer
it came late January day
frosty winds blew forth
across the northern bay.

Winter followed summer
guards in marble halls
poor in dreary hovels
silenced are their calls.

Winter followed summer
and darkness filled the glands
the chill is nipping at the core
of this our greatest land.
