Ogden Nash's Green Version


The cow is of the bovine ilk.  
One end is moo; 
the other, methane and milk.  


*His original: 'The cow is of the bovine ilk.  
One end is moo, the other milk.'

    I love Ogden Nash. Thanks for the read. By itself Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, and when it burns it produces carbon dioxide and water.
