If Only For a Moment

“If Only For a Moment”

It’s so cold in this old house!
Thin windows from the 50s,
Mildew on the wood that holds,
What’s worse than being this cold?

“All you need is love pizza” socks
Under last year’s jammy pants
And that ugly Santa sweater, hey
What is the weather like today?

Cold, like making hot coco packet mix
With frigid water, add real marshmallows
Or these stalemate “Baby It’s Cold Outside”
Conversations with obviously opposed sides

Don’t you just want to stay shut in
The small room adjoining the master
With the space heater going then
Bathe in scolding hot water and
Get comfortable if only a moment?
