A snowman's chance in hell

Take an old saying, aphorism or cliche and change it in some way. Use that in your piece, including five of the following words:

cliff
blackberry
needle
cloud
voice
mother
whir
lick

If you're using the prompt for a poem, the original suggested 10 lines.


(The list of sayings is from Mom-isms, a collection a son made of what he heard his mother saying growing up. There are a few that are "old school" thinking but you get to change them :-))

This was originally a poetry prompt from the Practice of Poetry edited by Robin Behn & Chase Twichell.
