The Crack in the Rooftop

The crack in the rooftop let the snow inside
And although it admitted the light of day
The mothers sent their children to run and hide

The fireplace crackled and then it died
Embers fled out through the chimney, away
The crack in the rooftop let the snow inside

Unable to simply sit by and abide
Shivering in abundant layers of grey
The mothers sent their children to run and hide

The fathers just smiled blithely and lied
Uncertain of the reason, they just choose to say
The crack in the rooftop let the snow inside

The families were far too riddled with pride
To accept the slightest assistance that day
The mothers sent their children to run and hide

The mothers and fathers and children all sighed
For being unable to divine the way
The crack in the rooftop let the snow inside
The mothers sent their children to run and hide
