Poetry Thursday 297 - Completely suitable

We live in a complex month currently. February is a winter month, dark and chilly and yet the home of Valentine's Day, and this year, Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday.

Unless we are savages

We should treat others with care,
and of their plight be aware,
Unless we are savages.

We should be prepared to be supportive,
and in doing so be creative.
Unless we are savages.

We should not horde wealth in small corners,
or be tight wad performers.
Unless we are savages.

We should be open-hearted,
not closed and broken hearted.
Unless we are savages.

We should be a rock for others,
in caring for our brothers.
Unless we are savages.

It is a chilly February,
one of the months of winter,
so what on earth do you expect?
When suffering suitable weather.

Don’t expect warm, sunny days,
or periods of no precipitation,
in February, northern hemisphere,
a suitably chilly location.

So accept your location’s chilly lot,
don extra layers of clothing,
there are benefits from the icy air,
not to be despised with loathing.

Or else gather up your belongings,
and find a suitably perfect land,
allowing the rest of us to wax and wane,
with weather of a more temperate brand.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Singletons dislike it,
And couples can too!
