Needs must..

Blasted wind and blasted rain,
oh look
the old man’s cussing again,

luckily
she looks out for me
and gets me, Long Johns,
I always wanted to be a pirate
but
wanting to keep my privates warm
comes first.

It’ll be Spring soon
all I have to do is
close my eyes and wish
upon a daffodil,
I will
will you
to make the wish come true?
