Merry Frankmas!

Franky the Snowmaize was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob nose and icicle hair
And two eyes made out of snow.
Franky the Snowmaize is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made to grow and the farmers
Know how he came to life one day.
FrostyFrank03There must have been some transgenes in that
Ear of corn they found.
For when they placed it on his face
He began to dance around.
O, Franky the Snowmaize
Was the same as he could be,
And the FDA says he could be in
Food today – equivalent substantially.

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Franky grow.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
In all the farmers rows.

FrostyFrank01Franky the Snowmaize knew
That Greenpeace was out that day,
So he said “Let’s run and
We’ll have some fun
Now before I’m plucked away.”
Down from the city,
With pitchforks in their hands,
Running here and there
Carving circles in his hair saying
Donate if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to U.S.D.A.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard a judge say “Political Hay!”
Though Franky the Snowmaize
Eliminates some sprays,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I will grow again someday.”

Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Franky grow.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
In all the farmer’s rows!
