Welcome to Friday, Dear Readers. I read recently that Al Gore has taken up a Vegan diet! I just hope he doesn’t scarf down all the Vegans and will leave some for the rest of us! Anyway, it got me to thinking about Dear Old Al:
An Ode To Al
Oh dear Al Gore, we love you so
For making up stuff, as you go
You’re so much fun, you’re such a gas
And of late, a colossal mass!
You are The Man of all things global
The recipient of prizes, Nobel
There’s really nothing we can do
To fill your carbon footprint shoe!
Though the environment’s in such a state
There’s still not too much on your plate!
There’s greenhouse gas, there’s ecosystems
(Well it’s far too numerous to list ’em)
Oh dear Al Gore, you always please
When a tear for polar bears you squeeze
And when you apply your concentration
You can actually pronounce “deforestation”!
Oh dear Al Gore, what would you do
If we weren’t burning fossil fuel
And melting glaciers left and right
To aid you in your noble fight!
When all is said and done, Dear Al
And you shuffle off to be God’s pal
Those pearly gates you’ll enter yet
For giving us the Internet
Until next time . . . I love you

What a guy. No wonder he had more popular votes than Dubya. You and I wouldn’t have an internet to blog on today if it hadn’t been for Al.
Mankind owes Al a debt of gratitude, maybe even a statue if he wasn’t already one.
I’m sure he would love this, Linda. He’s a great guy. You should send him a copy of your ode. 🙂
You know, I think I will! Thanks for the suggestion!
I’ve always been rather fond of Al Gore – he had an eye for coherent foreign policy which is unusual in post war American administrations. Indeed, from that perspective so did Mr Clinton – in my view from the outside looking in quite the most capable world leader of my lifetime! Now you won’t find many Daily Mail readers saying that! Great verse as ever.
Thanks Mike! I’ve actually seen Al Gore up close and personal. I’ll have to post the piece I wrote about it sometime. 😀
Darryl Hammond was a better Al Gore than Al Gore.
That is so true and more likable too!
very clever and very funny. if he’s fond of vegans, why not just opt for soya, they must taste the same really and far easy to fit in the deep freeze
Haha Sandy! Yes, he should opt for Soya! It will be interesting to see if he really does go Vegan. I’ll be keeping an eye on whether he gets thinner . . . then we’ll know for sure.
Make sure he eats his sprouts!! Ew!
