KILMER'S "TREES" UPDATED  (inspired by Ogden Nash)

 I fear that I shall never view
Ogden Nash,
poet and humorist

 A spoof that gobbles CO2.

 Rough drafts - their scribbled nest o’erflows

 The Blue-Box prest against my toes.

 And spoofs get hungry – ask their sire -

 For watts that flow down printer wire.

 Both home and office still it seems

 Consume their daily MegaReams.
  
 Once de-composed, spoofs’ souls will pass

 Into the stock of greenhouse gas.

 (The ozone loss from page and line

 Intimidates the Northern Pine).

 God’s Earth will fry ere Hell  may freeze;

 Save forests, don’t print parodies.
