The moral ozone


Oh, hole in earth’s ozone layer,
A worry well worth worrying
That soon may get this globe greyer,
Yet, there’re worries more worrying:
Take holes in our moral ozone,
Whatso the men of ken may say,
Not one vexed hair greyer has grown,
Nor one has walked a wiser way.
Me, a pen-pusher grown greyer,
In vain say this silent prayer.

Weapons settle no mores of men,
Fear, nor global catastrophe,
Morals today, a dung-hill hen,
Can wake but one that willing be.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
