Thread Name: Lyr Req: For the Man of Extinction (Mitchell Trio)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hammacher Schlemmer Poem
I'm pretty sure the Congressman verse comes from the same source, Yip Harburg via The Mitchell Trio. They did a few more of his pieces. There was one about Pentagonorrhea, one about whether African colonies were ready for independence.... I recall that at the time I was able to track down the Harburg book that had these and many other little poems.
