In the Cold October Rain

Connecticut is supposed to shine in this season,
But the weather’s been awful right now for some reason.
And I don’t like it at all, this ongoing monsoon.
It feels like a fake out, like the boy in the balloon.

There’s supposed to be leaves stacked up in a giant pile.
Instead all this freakin rain is tugging on my smile.
There are leaves alright, but they are ready to mildew,
Very depressing, like the passing of Captain Lou.

Good thing that into Playboy, Marge Simpson took the leap,
Because there's not much else for the leaf peepers to peep.
I would like pumpkins to carve and a crisp autumn night
Before winter is here and all this rain turns to white.
