Sendung

Die große Stadt ist zugeschneit
Und noch immer wie lange nicht
In den lauen Wintern schneit es. Ein Delirium
Wirbelnder trudelnder Kriställchen und Bällchen.
Die Rede von Bürgermeister: Schnee alles Schnee
Und schön für die Schlitten
Die durch die dumpf gedeckelte Stadt
Bunte Mützen entführen.
Noch immer lange zähe Zeiten ohne Wechsel
Der Farben schneit es
Herrschaftlich hohe Wehen
Belagern den Weg. Der Minister
Für Inneres schippt sich frei. Wenn das Jahr
Zu Ende ist knirscht es im Radio noch.
