So True, Dr. Seuss

“Well… that vent where I went
Was a sort of funnel
That led me down into
A frightful black tunnel.
The traffic down there
Was a mess, I must say,
With billions of birds
Going all the wrong way.
They bumped me with bikes
And they banged me with dishes.
I ran into ladders,
Beds, bottles and fishes.
I skidded on garbage.
I fell in a horn.
Troubles! I wished
I had never been born!”

  1. Love this. And it reminds me that I wrote a term paper about Dr. Seuss when I was in high school. All I can recall learning right now is that he didn't like children.

    But I hope things are okay on your end. (Or should I say tunnel? Hope not!)


  2. This is what I get for trying to be enigmatic. Things are okay, I just found the tunnel to be a nice analogy to the whole querying business 🙂

    What is so funny about your Dr. Seuss info, is that I too wrote an essay about him. All I really remember was that he was dishonorably discharged from the army.
