The Algore Mash

With apologies to Bobby Pickett and Leonard L. Capizzi, writers of Monster Mash
 
I was surfing on the web late last night
When my eyes beheld an awful sight:
Algore had posted another address
Warning the climate was under duress.
 
Refrain
He warns of change
He warns of Climate Change
It causes mange
That will hurt us long-range
It makes us strange
And it’s here at close range
He warns of change
He warns of Climate Change
 
Algore cried out for Science and Reason,
Charging us all with evil and treason.
His missive was long and full of details,
But quickly glossed over those darned e-mails.
 
Refrain
 
Algore is quite happy to guarantee

The pristine folks of the Academy.
I hear what he’s saying but all the same,
I know that those boys have skin in the game.
 
Refrain
 
But Algore will keep doing what he can
Working out details of his grand game plan;
His pockets keep growing as he can see
A mountain of cash on the climate tree.
 
Refrain
 
Some folks say he’s crazy, and some say weird,
But I say Algore is one to be feared.
Just a reminder, so you don’t forget:
Before Climate Change he made the Internet!
 
Refrain

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.

  1. And fools still persist in believing we are destroying the planet. Ted Turner just called climate change the greatest threat to mankind in the history of the world, confirming that he is in the late stages of dementia.
