A Louse of a Mouse

The Cat in the Hat came back a while ago But the costume he wore to vroom the pink snow Made him look like an extra in a cheap minstrel show So that cat was pure toast; he just had to go... Little Bo Beep has been put to sleep Haven't you noticed? Not one black sheep And Old King Cole, stripped of his royal role For culturally appropriating merry old 'soul'... As for Rocky the Squirrel and His Friends They've met an untimely end For mocking two good Communist spies Boris and Natasha "Badenov" Rocky and Bullwinkle surely will die... With sorrow, I inform you of the demise Of Clark Kent, whom fans came to despise For resisting the advances of one Lois Lane 'Course had he succumbed, he'd have been killed just the same... And shed no tears for the 'Mighty Mouse Playhouse' For 'Mighty' was a real louse of a mouse He thought some characters good, others evil Thereby denying relativism -- How terribly medieval!
