It wasn’t fair that his older brother Phil got all the attention. Was it his fault he was scared of people and ran and hid whether or not he saw his shadow? Hominidaphobia wasn’t uncommon among groundhogs. It’s just a shame that the family business centered around people. He’d never get out of Phil’s shadow.
It’s a Groundhog Day 55 for G-man! I hope everyone had a Happy Imbolic or Happy Groundhog Day. Only six more weeks until spring!
From red planet to blue
A long journey for this Martian to see
The indigenous population
Is very much a united nation
Each individual is independent
Yet their leader they represent
Always they are in contact
For their leader only they act
The screen–big, little, giant
Staring constantly; none are defiant
Their leader’s image on the screen
Words and images constantly seen
The denzions of the Earth
Obey the great god Google!
