The Sunday morning pundit programs are all being pre-empted by really boring blizzard coverage (how many different frozen reporters standing before an empty street with snow blowing around in the background do we need to see to understand it's cold outside?). So consider this a versifying open thread. Share your favorite, share your own, or send photos of the view outside your window.
Here's a piece I read a while ago and couldn't get out of my head:
A Poem That I Wrote in a High Fever
You who are lengthening your lives
with the best doctors and the best medicines
remember those who are shortening their lives
with the wars
that you in your long lives are not
You who are again screwing
the younger generations
and winking at each other
the winking of you eyelids
is like the chill of the swinging shutters
in an empty house.
(Translated, from the Hebrew, by Leon Wieseltier.)
