Here I Am the Tin Man

Every joint is frozen
from my neck down to my toes.
Thanks to a winter snow storm
Rudolph red is my nose.

Here I am the Tin Man,
I cannot move a bone.
The pain is overwhelming
All I can do is moan.

Global warming is the problem
or so the story goes
It must be true, it must be true,
Mr. Gore tells us it is so.

Wait! I live in Texas.
What’s happened to the map?
Eight degree wind chill,
Minnesota’s moved to our lap?

Here I am the Tin Man,
I cannot move a bone.
The pain is overwhelming
All I can do is moan.

  1. Thank you, Roland. I am dubious as well. It has made him a lot of money, though. I took a geology class in college. The professor believed whole-heartedly we are in an ice age. I was not convinced. But at this moment I believe the professor.
