An Exercise In Foosillity

I do not need a cup of tea. I do not need you're sympathy. I don't need you to be obtuse. I just need a cup of Seuss. The nib, the nub the flub a dub. A ring of truth in the dirty tub. How many squubbles can it squish? How many bubbles can it swish? The Freckle Heckle Farkle Foos. Escaped the zoo and now is loose. They've contacted inspecter Kleuss. And asked for help from Dr. Seuss. There seems to be no rhyme or reason For there seems to be no crime or treason. But when the slime leaks from the sneez'n. Sadly, it's just that time of season. So when your brain goes down the drain. And there seems that there's just no refrain. Just blow your nose to ease the pain. But not your mind so that you stay sane. Note: It seems I am up to my old ignorant bliss and didn't read what I shouldn't miss. So this won't be entered in the contest. So I offer it now just for jest. :) Written April 10, 2017
