Nine (and Counting)

Sundown shoveling
packing troubles
at the approved hour
Plow pushes worries aside
in hegemonic heaves
Dig the heavy shit
at the end of the drive
a different tomorrow
if only we had chosen
a warmer climate
Still we persist
tossing memories aside
This stitch in time saves
and we’re shoveling

For Magaly’s prompt to the Real Toads: RECYCLE A SAYING 
(A stitch in time saves nine.)
