How is it that as we speak,
There’s a sudden ice melt leak…
No salt in Worcester*
To pass roadway muster,
These hills have climbing mystique.
At home the same is true,
Back-ordered stuff hasn’t come through…
Hall buckets are shorted
And folks have resorted
To getting their own supply, too.
Is this a coincidence,
It would be a conspiracy immense…
Me thinks in due courses
Normal market forces
Will put supply back in present tense.
