inspiration + perspiration = invention :: T. Edison ::
Snowbank coffers make bad investments:
rapid growth, security untested.
They wink at prospects with icy grins,
hollow depths under brittle skins.
The subzero plunge brings frozen assets.
Ponds deliquiated. Paths indebted.
Chilled limbs musn't bear much weight.
frozen stiff, the bough may break.
Mercury, like stocks, may rise and fall
with little warning of storm or thaw.
January's namesake brings new year's woe,
so beware the bears and bulls of snow.
