Is this Ogden Nash?

It's a parody of Joyce Kilmer's trees and goes something like:

I think that I shall never see
An advert lovely as a tree
In fact, unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all!

I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.
~Ogden Nash, "Song of the Open Road," 1933

Thanks Stephen - I thought it was Nash just couldn't find it - not surprising as I was looking for the wrong words.
