Groundhog Day

O Groundhog of Doom
why must you torture us?
O Rodent of Misery and Despair
do you insist on seeing
or not seeing
your shadow?
Your mystical shadow?
Your power-hungry
cosmically superpowered
You have condemned us all
O Fuzzy Creature of Dubious Prophecy
to at least six more weeks
of references to you
many of them
involving puns
O Fat Harbinger of Bill Murray Quotations
let us be
so we can resolutely
face the horror
that is the coming
of Valentine’s Day
