A warming poem

From the brilliant Tim Blair, whose readers are possibly more brilliant:

Lyle’s History of Global Warming:

Ah, looking back, I have to smile,
When I was but a little Lyle
In summer, and I used at play
In gentle Narragansett Bay.

Then panic grabbed ahold of me
When suddenly I had to pee
And to my shame, I now admit,
I warmed the ocean, just a bit.

That reckless moment, I suspect,
Set off a domino effect;
And here’s a fact I now must face:
I have destroyed the human race.

And so I must apologize
As all life on this planet dies,
I’m sorry, I was only three
And really, really had to pee.
