Inappropriate Poetic Subjects #8 – Sunblock

Ogden Nash(oid) version

Come now, let us block the sun.
Too much sun is not much fun.
Burning leaves you all vercleff:
So get you some SPF.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow(ish) version

In erythemal action spectrum,
Came solar irradiance falling
Needing monochrome protection
For the lambda of the wavelength
By the raging blue green waters
Came the daughter of Nokomis
There to have the Bullfrog wearing

– = –

Haiku version

sun streaming summer wind waves
leaf gently blowing
We’ll need SPF 50
