Snow Slithers Up

The night was dark and stormy [Nym]

Carborundum nightmares haunted every waking moment [Kansas Sam]

Suddenly, a shot rang out! [Karin]

And died did he most suddenly [Nym]

I heard two orphans begging for food [Karin]

In perfect major thirds they trilled [Nym]

But I ignored their plaintive cries, being Welsh and short [Francine]

And anyway, I had to see a fish about a bicycle [Nym]
