Seasoned Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s spring and the weather is mild.
Now it’s summer. The heat has me riled.
Autumn leaf-peaking thrills me,
And winter’s cold chills me.
All once true — now the weather’s just wild.

(My verse about global warming and climate change was prompted by “Time Counts” at We Write Poems.)

Huntsman Changes His Climate Change Tune (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Once upon a time, way back in August 2011, Jon Huntsman was a voice of sanity on climate change. He even tweeted, “To be clear, I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.”

But I suppose desperate poll numbers make for pathetic pandering.

In a move that’s sure to endear him to the conservatives who are starting to warm up to the former Utah governor, Huntsman said Tuesday under questioning from TPM that he now believes there’s “more debate yet to play out” before we can be sure climate change is really happening.

Huntsman’s climate-change views once were sane.
But no more — he’s tossed truth down the drain.
Now he wants “more debate.”
Yes he’s flip-flopped to rate.
He’s debased — deep in Romney terrain.
