Green Guru Gone? (a poem)
So, is he or isn’t he going to run?
Will he be drafted or will he shun
Which the mighty Oscar has begun?
The world stampedes to raise this man
To heights of greatness if he can
Resist the temptation
Of insane bloviation
And lose the title of also-ran.
Is he Alpha Male? Is he just one of the guys?
Is he acclaimed and looked up to with eager eyes,
Using his charm
To persuade and disarm
Those whose true sanity says otherwise?
No, the Green Guru is fading,
His great days of persuading
Are marred forsooth
By scientific truth.
His sophomoric waste is now degrading.
Farewell faded Veep.
What you sowed you’ll now reap.
