Gods versus Groundhog

The Anemoi are creating havoc.

Boreas and Zephyr are in disagreement:

What weather they should cause the groundhog to foreshadow?

The Nephelines delight in their fight

and shroud the heavens in clouds

Zeus will not tolerate their impertinence;

neither will he be hid.

So sit back and enjoy the show:

Thunder booms, lightning cracks, and the winds scream.

Punxsutawney Phil will scurry hither and thither.

How dare a mere rodent garner more acclaim?

The odds are not in his favor.

The gods demand their share of the fame.
