The snowflake makers’ union said, “We’re going out on strike
Against the rule that tells us no
Two flakes can be alike.
“Every water molecule
Is more or less the same,
So when we cobble them together,
Why in Heaven’s name
“Can we not turn out multiples
Of the patterns we like best?
The one-and-done rule spoils our fun.
We’re striking to protest.
“We pride ourselves on our designs,
Which outshine rain and hail.
But infinite variety
Has, frankly, gotten stale.”
