The Wind Chill Factor

The wind chill factor
Makes us all actors
Pretending we don't feel
The cold ... from head to heels

As the thin socks, shirts and pants
We donned for yesterday's warmth
Protects us not from the dance ...
We do in our heads, legs and arms

And the briskness whips right thru our skin
As the cold chills so, we can't begin ...
To see our visions for the day ahead
For the biting at our bones stops us dead

- Tristram
