Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss cheerfully goes up to the counter.

He orders a frosty fluff iced tea flan flouter.

He stays very still

His drink remains chilled

He waits (very patient) for his cup to be filled.

He calls to the shop, “I speak for the teas, for the teas have no tongues.

“And I’m asking you, sir, at the top of my lungs,

“Why is my cup taking so long to fill?

“I’ve been standing here, waiting, with my five-dollar bill.”

And finally, after a long, quiet pause,

He lets out a series of hearty guffaws.

“I’m sorry, good sir,”

He cries out with a smile,

“It’s totally fine my drink’s taking a while.

“I’ll stand here and read, wearing nothing but tweed,

“And I know that my drink will be done with great speed.”

He stands and he waits,

And he waits,

And he waits,

And finally, now it’s a quarter to eight,

He hears the barista call out, “Theodore!”

Dr. Seuss stands up and goes for the door.

The barista calls out, “Good sir, here’s your drink!”

Dr. Seuss turns around and tries hard to think.

“I’m so sorry again,” he says with a smile,

“It’s just I’d forgotten my surname was Geisel.”

Dr. Seuss for Nursing Moms

Would you nurse her in the park?
Would you nurse him in the dark?
Would you nurse him with a Boppy?
And when your boobs are feeling floppy?

I would nurse him in the park,
I would nurse her in the dark.
I’d nurse with or without a Boppy.
Floppy boobs will never stop me.

Can you nurse with your seat belt on?
Can you nurse from dusk till dawn?
Though she may pinch me, bite me, pull,
I will nurse her `till she’s full!

Can you nurse and make some soup?
Can you nurse and feed the group?
It makes her healthy strong and smart,
Mommy’s milk is the best start!

Would you nurse him at the game?
Would you nurse her in the rain?
In front of those who dare complain?
I would nurse him at the game.
I would nurse her in the rain.

As for those who protest lactation,
I have the perfect explanation.
Mommy’s milk is tailor made
It’s the perfect food, you need no aid.

Some may scoff and some may wriggle,
Avert their eyes or even giggle.
To those who can be cruel and rude,
Remind them breast’s the perfect food!

I would never scoff or giggle,
Roll my eyes or even wiggle!
I would not be so crass or crude,
I KNOW that this milk’s the perfect food!

We make the amount we need
The perfect temp for every feed.
There’s no compare to milk from breast-
The perfect food, above the rest.

Those sweet nursing smiles are oh so sweet,
Mommy’s milk is such a treat.
Human milk just can’t be beat.
I will nurse, in any case,
On the street or in your face.

I will not let my baby cry,
I’ll meet her needs, I’ll always try.
It’s not about what’s good for you,
It’s best for babies, through and through.

I will nurse her in my home,
I will nurse her when I roam.
Leave me be lads and ma’am.
I will nurse her, Mom I am.
