"Springtime" In New England

When it’s springtime in New England unlike Alaska it’s not 40 below
But with yet another storm the area is again being covered in snow
The Capitol Hill has become a sledder’s dream
At area airports the chances of flying out losing steam
Flights cancelled right and left up and down the arrival and departure boards
So much for the myth that spring is a season by ending winter to be adored
The Swamp may be garbed in a fresh blanket of white
But inside the Blues and Reds locked in a brutal budget fight
1.3 trillion dollars of spending being sought
Any idea of fiscal frugality going for naught
Hard to believe in climate change when late March snows are falling down
Immobilizing with snow throughout New England town after town after town
