in Sir Pelham Grenville’s world
everyone is merry, or clever,
amusing or, at the very least,
affable and well-groomed
with a gift for understatement.
And among these charming
obfuscaters, fabulists, rich fops
and con men there is never
any serious talk of a world
which includes Buffalo, New York
where, according to the morning news,
it snowed seven feet in one day and
the absolute last straw was the
sound clip of the plow driver
It’s too much snow for the plows.
Reading P.G. Wodehouse
