Mark Holmberg poetry

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – We all know CBS 6 reporter Mark Holmberg has a creative streak. Now he wants to hear from you. Click here to email Mark an original piece of snow-inspired poetry and he’ll choose one to read on TV.

To get your creative juices flowing, Mark submitted the first poem:

Four to eight, eight to 10.

We’re going to die all over again.

Close the schools, state-of-emergency calls,

Before the very first snowflake falls.

It’s so easy to forget in this threat of snow,

That we overcooked the panic just two weeks ago.

Forget enjoying this brief gift of the season,

50 degrees by Friday, to inject some reason.

So cram the stores, strip the shelves.

It’s okay, we just can’t help ourselves.
