("Global Roasting Can Be Set Aside")

(to the tune of "The Christmas Song")  

Al Gore
former U.S. Vice-President

Planet’s roasting can be set aside.
Al Gore’s nightmare can’t unfold -
Records tumbling, roads closed, bursting pipes
And six-foot drifts in Buffalo ...  

   ...Armchair  experts doubt, outliers like some melting floes
Help predict our global fate.
Tiny dots graphing century lows-
 Warm some years, but it’s not too late.

We know that Sa-anta’s on his way;    
If he brings shorter winters here - more time to play!
I’ll ditch my snowboots, yet retire in my town,
‘Cause rising seas may make South Florida drown.

And so I send November sympathies,
Where Christmas came too soon this year -
Although it’s been said many times many ways,
Glad it didn’t,  glad it didn’t,
Glad it didn’t hap - pen here.
