100 years of Dr Seuss
March 2nd is the birthdate of a wonderful man,
Who made smiles and laughter and penned poems about ham
Enriching our lives with strange rhymes for reading,
He gave us green eggs and grinches - Just what we were needing!
Let's all celebrate! 100 years ago he was born
So rattle your rattlers! And honkle your horns!
Remember the Lorax, Speak up for the trees
Remember striped socks that come up to your knees
He taught us to think way on beyond zebra
If he'd been born in October, he would be a libra
Nora Roberts sells books and so does Grisham
But do they write about fun stuff like 'Green Eggs and Ham'?
All of us children are smartly and wisel
For the wonderful words of the late Mr Geisel
