– Horatio Algeranon's parody of Bette Midler
Some say warming is a sea-wave
That drowns the coastal town
Some say warming is a heat-wave
That wilts the cornfields down
Some say warming’s what CO2 gave,
A blanket all around.
I say warming is a “Gore rave”
The science is not sound.
It’s the skeptic afraid of faking
Who never learns the dance.
It’s the nerd afraid of hacking
Who never takes the chance.
It’s the one who is forsaking,
Who doesn’t even try,
And the soul afraid of lying
Who never will deny.
When the fight has been too lonely
And the warming’s been too long,
And you think denial is only
For the plucky and the strong,
Just remember in the Daily Mail
Where the scientist never goes
Lies the creed that with the Curry love
From a thorn becomes the Rose
