Five Below Zero

Snow is falling

The beast from the East

Storm warning

An unexpected freeze

Another bitter morning

Five below zero at least


Cat’s in the kitchen

Looking for a place to sleep

Kitchen kettle’s boiling

Why don’t we make some tea?

Wipe away the steam

Looks like five below zero to me


Today it doesn’t matter what happens in the world outside

Got to make the fire up, ready for the evening time


Bread is proving

Bubbling with the sourdough yeast

Outside it’s cooling

Icicles in the trees

Time to shovel snow

Make like a hero

Rest when you’re dead

Said Robert de Niro

Or stay in your bed

We’re five below zero degrees
