Here is my silly adaptation. I chose to write a tribute type poem to Dr. Seuss. I must say "Wacky Wednesday" did invade my life. Once I discovered the book and read it with my daughter, life changed. We celebrated "Wacky Wednesday" with dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. Once in a Blue Moon I would let my children eat dessert first. I know wacky, right! I did make sure it was something with some protein in it, like Peanut Butter Chocolate pudding! I hope in honor of Dr. Seuss, you too will embrace Wednesday and do something wacky!
you silly goose
you set my mind a whirling
like oysters do, I too began a pearling
You made reading fun, when I was young
your rhyming gave me a twisted tongue
I learned to love the abuse
oh, Dr. Seuss you silly goose
Children came and you again entered my brain
allowing me to dance down memory lane
my thoughts scrambled like green eggs n' ham
I need to live like a clam
or maybe like Horton hears a Who
then I think of red and blue and things one n' two
the Grinch reminds me of Cindy Lou
Then Wacky Wednesday had that silly shoe
How do you do it..get in my head
you nested in my capillary bed
If I ran the Zoo
Horton would not have heard the who
The Cat in the hat
would have found a bat
inside his chapeau
How would we grow?
Would I have Hopped on Pop
What would I talk about at the bus stop?
Sneetches would their bellies have stars
Would a green dog in a yellow tree have cars?
Oh, Dr. Seuss
You silly goose
would a fox wear socks
would Knox find a box
would my tongue be in knots
Thanks Dr. Seuss for all the crazy thoughts!!!
Thanks for tying my tongue in a bow
Thanks for letting me grow
Thank you, Thank you
for being zany like a goose
for giving me an excuse
n' setting my imagination on the loose***
