Thank You, Dr. Seuss

Thank you, Dr. Seuss
for speaking for the Truffula trees
for the brown-bar-ba-loots, the
swomee-swans, and the humming-
fish — and all those whose blood
in some way becomes the many fine
objects, the many somethings that
someone thinks everyone needs.

Thank you, Dr. Seuss,
for the mossy old Lorax —
because Truffulas have no tongues,
because animals sacrifice mutely,

and because blood can never,
ever be re-paid
in Thneeds.
