The Conformist Snowflake
No two snowflakes are alike. That's what we learned in our science books. And we believed it. But what if it's not really true? This is the sad tale of a snowflake who set out in quest of her identical twin.
There once was a snowflake named Mattie
Who lived off in cold Cincinnati.
One day, chilly Mattie went batty
And pondered and then waxed quite chatty.
She set out atop a fur hattie
To find a twin snowflake as flatty
And oddly proportioned at Mattie
Who lived off in cold Cincinnatti.
She checked each snowbank and mudflatty
In quest of her twin snowflake Patty.
She looked 'til the sun shined and thatty
Was what made poor Mattie go splatty.
The bookmark is here. Mattie's somewhere in Cincinnati.
