Picture Imperfect

I think that Currier and Ives
Led very tame and sheltered lives.
In every cheerful winter scene
The sky is bright, the snow pristine.
You see no gray and grimy slush,
No sleet to slow the evening rush,
No nasty skidding episodes,
No KIAs stranded off the roads.
You just see brisk but sunny days
Complete with one-horse open sleighs.
In answer to those pretty pics,
The real world gives us “wintry mix!”

    The sky so bright.
    But the icy privy is no delight!
