Scientific Exploration

Snowflakes have six sides
If you want to see for yourself
Get a reliable forecast of snow and
Put a piece of black construction paper in the freezer and
Wait until something actually starts to fall
Until it just starts to fall
Then run out there with your piece of paper and
A kid
Without a kid you're just a weirdo standing outside with a piece of paper
With a kid
Find a flat surface and set down your piece of paper and
You will be able to confirm that
Snowflakes have six sides and
That they have rather short lives and
That for some reason
Each of us must learn that for ourselves
