It’s Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! Here’s a Tasteless Post to Celebrate!
I would not, could not eat Play Dough
I would not, could not, don’t you know?
It’s smelly, salty and full of germs
And sometimes you shape it to look like worms
I would not eat it in a box
I would not eat it with a fox
I would not eat in on a train
Please stop asking, it hurts my brain
Play dough is not food to eat
It’s a modeling compound, not a treat
So when your tummy hurts tonight
Remember how you took a big bite
Chewed it up and swallowed it too
Hoping to make colorful poo
Instead you’ll have a tummy ache
To show for this gustatory mistake
And in your potty you will not see
A rainbow swirl floating in your pee
I will not join you on this quest
Please stop now and let me rest
I would not, could not eat this stuff
I did it once and that’s enough.
