New Poem: "Global Warming"

"Global Warming" is the latest poem to be added to my growing Snowetry collection.  It is a short, traditional ballad--three quatrains of rhyming iambic tetrameter.  The poem did not begin as political commentary, but ended up taking a jab at those bird brains on the left who are so arrogant as to believe that they understand anything about global climatology.  In fact, by calling those bozos "bird brains," I insult the birds, who know more than humans do about the climate, the changing of the seasons, and the rhythms of the earth.  For example, a  Starling (pictured, looking angry in its winter plumage) knows when to change the color of its feathers.  Given the domination of the left in the industry, I doubt the poem will ever get published as a stand-alone, but it may reach the public as part of a collection.  Anyway, a poet can dream.
