So, This Is a Joke, Right?

Calls for Californians to use less water

in the face of a prolonged drought

have resulted in water use going up

with the temperature.

Botta bing.

Condo Association Boards in Phoenix,

in the light of significantly rising water

prices and limited water availability,

continue to vote for Kentucky Blue

over desert rocks and cacti.

Botta bang.

In light of the indisputable scientific

evidence that greenhouse gases are

burning up the land, big vehicle

drivers in Michigan zip along the

interstates faster than ever.

Botta boom.

Are these all the kids that sat on either

side of you, in front and behind in fifth grade

— the ones, who when you looked around,

prompted you, another fifth grader, to say,

“You’ve got to be kidding me.”?

 

Reminds one of the lyrics, “Clowns to

the left of me, jokers to the right. Here

I am, stuck in the middle with you.”

 

Well, I really didn’t mean you.
