Birthday Happies to Dr. Seuss

If you'd never been born, well what would you be?

You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree!

You might be a door knob! Or three baked potatoes!

You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes!

Or worse than all that... why, you might be a WASN'T!

A Wasn't has no fun at all. No, she doesn't.

A Wasn't just isn't. She just isn't present.

But you... you ARE YOU! And now, isn't that pleasant!

-Dr. Seuss

The madness of March makes for a day so befitting,
to celebrate a nice gentleman sort,
the weather permitting.

A ridiculous rhyme and a riddle, a cat in a hat.

A Who-hearing Horton poised for idle chit chat.

A man who taught us that Wednesdays were made to be wacky.

A day of becoming, one most Cracker Jacky.

A reminder for keeping our butter sides up,
the world set to enjoy, a heaping love cup.

We thank you, we thank you for the gifts straight from your brain,
 the thoughts streaming from it were never mundane.

The sillyness of sorts, zany and askew,
We can't tell you enough how we love what you do.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
For this we celebrate with a holler and shout!

We thank you for being fierced-witted and silly,
For having the boldness to be you, willy-nilly.

"For there is no one alive who's ever been more you-er than you!"

We can't thank you enough for all that you continue to do.

...and monkey heaps of thank yous for allowing us make sense out of nonsense!
