Winnipeg Poem

Survivors in the frozen north



Winnipeg Poem - It's Winter in Winnipeg

It’s winter in Winnipeg
and the gentle breezes blow
at seventy-five miles an hour
at thirty-five below

Oh how I love Winnipeg
when the snow is up to your butt
you take a breath of winter air
and your nostril’s freeze shut

Yes the weather here is wonderful
so I guess I’ll stick around
I could never leave Winnipeg
because I’m frozen to the ground
