Ecopalypse Now! (a poem)

Russ Vaughn
*With thanks to Mark Steyn*


It's cold, raining non-stop in northeastern states,

Other places are freezing on really strange dates;

Dry places are drowning in precipitation,

"Aha! Global Warming!" cries a fool federation


Warm air holds more water, their expert tells all,

But, gee, isn't it cooling that makes the rain fall?

The ice cap's receding because of pollution,

But, wait, it's expanding-is pollution solution?


Firmly convinced that the sky's indeed falling

They twist every truth because facts are so galling.

Hip-deep in denial, nature's sole consecraters

Yelling "Fire!" at the world, from their flooding theaters.
