re-posted from last year: Do you search all day for moose?
Or spend time pursuing fame?
Instead, try playing Dr. Seuss
Seussville is sure to have your game.
Did you know that Dr. Seuss
(for Geisel was his real last name)
Had to author his works by means loose,
And thus delay his future fame.
He was caught throwing a wee party
During prohibition days
And swore he’d never be tardy
And “gave up” extra curricular ways.
A doctorate he never earned
Though he started for a PhD,
He married and moved, but yearned
To write stories of hilarity.
Hurray for his perseverance
Creator of “Grinch”, “Horton” and “Sam”
Three cheers for his endurance
Our children reading at last, “I am!”
In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, I have adapted his classic
There’s A Wocket in My Pocket.
