“The wrong parts are frosted” haiku

Overnight deep freeze
Makes rooftops look like my head
All covered in white

Overnight deep freeze
That faint scraping sound? Neighbors
Clearing their windshields

Sorry, but if we
Want de frost we’ll open de
Refrigerator

Hey, Mother Nature!
We love frosting, but save it
For cupcakes, cornflakes
———————————
Silver branches shake
And shiver, their crimson coat
Fallen to the ground
