Writer's Block: A literary masterpiece
Which books will you certainly read to your children, nieces, nephews or godchildren?


Oh, indeed I will read and read
First on the list, well, it's no use
No matter how you ban him I will read Dr. Seuss!
"Green eggs and ham" even tho' many disapprove
Saying it has homoerotic overtones - Oh, really? I will next move
And read "The Cat In the Hat"
Home Invasion! The critics say
Bah! say I and tho' many say Nay
I will read my grandchild the tale of the Lorax
Tree-hugger propaganda guarenteed to vex
Yertle the Turtle with lessons to teach
And yes, I will certainly read them about a Sneetch
With its flaming liberal views about bellies and stars
And who should be having one upon thars!


The Forgotten Beasts of Eld I will read as well
And McKinley's Beauty - who is no Disney's Belle!
Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn will be there for the boys
And if they are willing to listen and sit
like Marirose I will read to them The Hobbit!

Oh, let the critics with horror whine and moan
I will read them banned books in my home!

I don't watch Fox! *pouts* I only watched the local news on the Fox affiliate in college because they gave the weather and traffic for Westchester county and not just NYC.

I always loved Dr Seuss. In fact, I had a couple of the books that I think I read multiple times a day. I learned to read at 2 using them. Wonderful things.
