Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,

    Forecasting the weather
    back then was as if.
    Remembering,
    Katherine Hepburn's
    house on the upper east coast.
    Like a Judge
    with a defendant before you.
    Do you punish or save
    those before you......iip

    What a fair weather poem, cloudy with a chance of brilliance.
    Great, great write! Is it safe to set sail today?

    Help Claudia, the dark one keeps deleting the end of my comment, posting separately again. The deletion of Claudia’s comment raises the question, do readers have the right to comment regardless of whether they like a poem or not? And whether other readers agree or disagree? My weather forecast on this one is most reader want to see both honest positive and negative comments on quality, because it makes reading comments more interesting. Any bets on how this comment weather’s the storm?

    I like the line 'Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see, ' in the first line of the poem contrasted with the ending everlasting glow: ' of 'Cloudy; variable winds, with local showers; cooler; snow.' Global warming and rising sea levels seems to have put the lie to this weather report also. Reminds me of the joke about the weather forecaster who had to move because the weather did not agree with him.
    Interesting that Claudia Krizay pointed out that the critic running this site is also disagreeable. I would have been interested in your original comment Claudia. My father taught me to weigh pros and cons of arguments and think before arguing, thus I shall weigh out of this one without an opinion on the actual quality of the poem, another sad cop out; nice ab end rhyme scheme though.

    Ron Burgundy! Will Ferrell's voice reading this poem and if you don't laugh...

    Eternally unchanging weather report or forecast it is! For, Nature preserves past in present to future! This is true more now than before!

    Compared to most writes of classics, i must be missing something as to me this is merely mediocre...the one ingratiating feature is the mention of asbestos slab which pulled a little to humour or environmental issues, i am a tad slow sometimes so may be missing the obviously fabulous.... sorry ambrose
