HOW WAS I TO KNOW?


Just one thing more, I asked God, point blank,
as I was about to be born...
"Do I...
or don't I
tip
the obstetrician?"

MY UNCLE TERWILLIGER ON THE ART OF EATING POPOVERS


My uncle ordered popovers
From the restaurant's bill of fare
And, when they were served, he regarded them
With a penetrating stare...
Then he spoke great Words of Wisdom
As he sat there on that chair:
"To eat these things," said my uncle,
"You must exercise great care -
You may swallow down what's solid...
But you must spit out the air!"

And... as you partake of the world's bill of fare,
That's darned good advice to follow,
Do a lot of spitting out the hot air
And be careful what you swallow!


Lake Forest College Commencement Address
By Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) - June, 1977
FIRST POEM


Mrs. Van Bleck
of the Newport Van Blecks
is so Goddamn rich
she has gold-plated sex.
Whereas Miggles and Mitzi
And Blitzie and Sue
Have the commonplace thing
And it just has to do.

Dr. Seuss

A day with my friend, Marty, and Dr. Seuss at the AMOA
You can get help from teachers,
but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
