F is for frozen.
On April 6, 1954, Swanson introduced the first frozen TV dinner. Perhaps ironically, American explorers Matthew Henson and Robert Peary became the first to reach the North Pole on the same date in 1909.
Certainly, April 6th has become an appropriate occasion for examining the big chill in its many forms.
What’s that sticking in your craw?
Did I break unwritten law?
All I hear is “Blah, blah, blah”
And sarcastic, sad guffaw.
How began this rapid freeze?
Who did dare to sneeze, displease
He whom no one can appease?
Save your dastardly disease.
Malcontents may not be won
Once their grudges have begun.
Take your chilly grievance gun.
Tuck your tail in, turn and run.
