THE WEATHER MAN
"Cold wave is passing over,
Warmer weather on the way"
That's what the paper tells us
Pretty nearly every day.
They do not mean to irk us,
Those of journalistic clan,
They get their "dope" on -weather

And cannot see the joke,
Just blame it on the weather man
And not the paper folk.
