Groundhog Day

At the top of my hit list is time to kill
hibernating at the bar.
It’s cold, dark, and winter still.

The civilized world looks to roadkill
before consulting a radar,
knowing we all have time to kill.

Thanks to that Punxsutawney Phil
seeing his shadow so long and far,
it’s cold, dark, and winter still.

Plenty of staring at the window sill,
Waiting for the streetcar,
Always on my hit list is time to kill.

The end of the month brings a massive bill,
too high a price to stay warm
in the cold dark winter, still.

I collect moments but can’t fill
the tank of my car.
I have a hit list. First, time to kill
in the cold, dark winter still.
