Another Freakin' Poem

What can I say? Something about the weather (a damp grey gloom), and this parody of the "Cuckoo Song" just sums it up for me:

“Ancient Music”

Winter is icumen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.
Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Damm you; Sing: Goddamm.
Goddamm, Goddamm, 'tis why I am, Goddamm,
So 'gainst the winter's balm.
Sing goddamm, damm, sing goddamm,
Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM.

--Ezra Pound, 1915

Yup. That about sums it up.
