The reluctant martyr

The snow still lays upon the ground
Those flakes with frost and ice now bound
And in the garden ice is found
Upon the freezing pond
The birdbath sports a mini rink -
Too inaccessible to drink
Sod that the thirsty birdies think
And search for food beyond

Its warm indoors, the central heating
With the temperatures competing
Makes the winter cold seem fleeting
And the night less raw
And then – the sound I’ve come to dread
While I lie snugly in my bed
The cats are teasing loose a thread
Of carpet by the door

Jethro alas is roused from sleep
Till then there hadn’t been a peep
To the back door I hear him creep
And then he’ll scratch a paw
There’s no escape – I yawn and curse
It only goes from bad to worse
I grumble using words quite terse
My cold feet hit the floor

I am a martyr to the cause
Of opening and closing doors
When summoned by indignant paws
“I need a wee!” the dog implores
I shut Them in the sitting room
They’ve brought upon themselves their doom
While I return with air of gloom
Into my freezing bed …
