Seuss "tribute"

[ #17718 ]

What possesses people to think they can write Seussian poems to celebrate Theodor Seuss Geisel's centennial? On Rembrandt's birthday, do they pull the easel out of the closet and try to paint in his style? On Bach's, do they dash off cantatas? I haven't even read through the whole thing, but I know it's horrible. These things always are. They can never keep to a meter, and this one doesn't even rhyme for some lines.

I guess if it's for KidsPost any old crap will do to fill the space.

  • I've always had a sneaking suspicion that some people just don't have a sense for meter, and so when they write something that's metrically awful, they just can't tell the difference.
    • Some things are best left unseen.
      Tabloid, paper, magazine:
      Low-class writing earns my spleen.

      At first glimpse it seems okay;
      Further reading makes me sway.

      Don't you think that they should know it?
      They should check it with a poet.
