Dr. Seuss On Bath Salts

Fiction and Poetry

Would or could Dr. Seuss ever eat a face?

The one thing, the fun thing no one can replace?

What about a normal face?

Think slowly, this is not a race

What about a face with mace?

Oh merry oh me serve a mace face with glee

A face with mace would be sickeningly sweet

A face with mace would be good enough to eat

Finish it up a meal that can’t be beat

A face with all the trappings, no mean feat

A face with a name, I think his name was Pete
