The Cold Hard Facts

The Cold Hard Facts

Sometimes I'm very square
and sometimes I'm very hard.
But heat me up and soon
I've melted like a tub of lard.

I look excellent in glasses,
I look lovely in a tray.
And with me inside your cooler
you can picnic all darn day.

When kids fall down in football
I make sure their wounds don't swell.
And when someone has a bloody lip
I comfort them as well.

You can eat me when I'm solid.
You can drink me when I'm not.
And although I suffer freezer burn,
I'm not what you'd call hot.
