24 From Mr. Gore

*
If twenty-four from Mr. Gore
Was that which you were waiting for,
You might check in a loony bin;
They have a wing for Albert’s kin.
*
Ms. Maggie Fox, who runs the box
From which Al Gore projects his vox,
Has had a thing for Climate Spring
And wants to make Big Oil swing.
*
But I would call September fall,
And note that Gore cares not at all
For verity, sincerity,
Or personal austerity.
*
I think we must Al Gore distrust,
Along with those who would adjust
Their climate plots when certain dots
Don’t fit their predetermined slots.
*
So set a goal for use of coal,
And let your furnace rock and roll.
Ignore Al Gore and help restore
The place of man on earth once more.
*

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. Clearly Al Gore is more interested in money than his integrity or credibility. From Dictionary.com, we learn the origin of the word gore:
      Origin:
      before 900; Middle English; Old English gor dung, dirt; cognate with Dutch goor, Old High German gor filth
      Very fitting, don’t you think. The man is a turd.
