Getting the Cold Shoulder

If you go into the yard today, 
You’re sure of a big surprise
If you go into the yard today, 
You’ll never believe your eyes
For heaps of snow have helped to reveal
The way appliances actually feel:
The barbecue’s upset you forgot its cover.

Cover time for barbecue,
The little barbecue is 
Shivering in the snow today,
Remember what you’re s’pposed to do
And put that cover on now, don’t delay!

See it looks so grumpy now,
You need to dig and plow,
Whatever you have to do.
But it can’t stay all covered in snow or
It will freeze and rust
That’s why it’s a grumpy little barbecue.

Snow covered BBQ, whose handle and knobs look like a grumpy, toothy face. Angry eyebrows and hand have been doodled in. Speech bubble says, "Never thought I'd see the day I'd become a chaar-cold Brrr-BQ.
