Winter Toast

When the weather again getting chilly and cold,
And makes you feel you are useless and tired and old,
That is the time to get out the Rum from the cupboard,
(Where hidden it was since last winter, safely stored),
Glass to the rim you fill, careful not to miss a drop,
Desperately trying to get warm, freezing bottom to top,
Winter ahead seven months of snow, wind, and frost,
A legitimate excuse to have another drink and toast.
