(Hat tip to Augustus de Morgan)
Great heats have lesser heats which grow before to cause ’em,
And little heats have lesser heats, and so ad nause-ausam.
The great heats themselves in turn cause greater heats in future,
And greater heats give “reasons” for politicals to loot yer.
(You can substitute “droughts,” “rains,” or “colds” for “heats” in the above).
