I don’t mean to seem like a know-it-all,
But remember not to fight with a snowball.
If you find yourself in a strange predicament,
Like in a winter storm that seems so innocent,
It might not be innocent in the least,
Growing until it becomes a beast.
A snowball can build ‘till it overtakes you.
It might be something that surely quakes you.
So much better to stay inside by the fire,
And never to get into straits that are dire.
A snowball can run you into the ground,
Especially if you’re a snowman or a basset hound.
Have a snowball fight with yourself instead
With cotton balls in a nice warm bed.
Cotton is too soft to be of any danger,
And you won’t hit me who might be a stranger.
