“So-Called Leaders”

by Clyde Always

If carbon emissions can make you upset,
your quarrel’s with anyone breathing…

Miss Thunberg’s new tirade (her quippiest yet),
left many a world leader seething.
To chide them, she found (as the teenagers do)
repetitive syllables fitting.

Did Greta not realize how much CO²
she blah blah blah blah was emitting?
