RED SNOW. C.J. Black

What would happen if we had red snow?

Would the countryside brightly glow?

We could have red snowball fights

They would glow like red florescent lights,

But what would happen when darkness fell

To be out in red snow would be sheer hell,

The little robin would get such a fright

He’d have to change his breast from red to white,

The berries on the holly tree

Would have to change quite drastically,

What would happen if we had red snow?

Rudolph’s nose would no longer glow,

Father Christmas could no longer dress in

His long red flowing robe

What a headache that would be for he’s so

Well known around the globe.

What would happen if we had red snow?

Would pantomime have to go?

Sure Snow Red and the Seven Dwarfs

Wouldn’t be the same kind of show

Those are some things that might happen

If we had red snow.
