Climate Does It - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

They say that in Seattle snot
runs out of noses quite a lot.

which, in a way, may be a pity.
There is a creature which has got

And all the sucking up to others
still means that only stupid mothers
could ever say a thing of praise
to poetry of such malaise.
