Happy Birthday Theodor Geisel

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Although you've made me ill,
Even if there were a cure I wouldn't take the pill.
I enjoy this strange disease; in fact, I'm doing fine.
Think I'll nurse this Dr. Seussilitis bug of mine.

Don't know how my children feel about it; haven't asked.
I suspect that they'd prefer to introduce me masked.
Has to be embarrassing - a mother spouting rhyme;
Clearly indicating she's got way too much free time.


  1. There is no such thing as too much free time!

    1. I'm with you Miz Scarlett but (I'm sad to say) I've found
      Working people grow annoyed with those who hang around.
      No such thing as time that's free; 'cause someone has to pay
      For the folks who have the time to hang around and play.
