Seuss Seuss Seuss Seuss Seuss!

The bookshelves of Booksmith have many a use.
Since March is approaching, they're now sporting Seuss.
The bard who penned many a rollicking line
is turning, March second, a hundred and nine.
The heart books are down now, and what could be sweeter
than filling the shelves with impeccable meter?
Come visit the back of the store, and your eyes'll
be ambushed by creatures created by Geisel:
a pop who's been hopped on, a Sam who loves green,
the Sneetches, Sylvester McMonkey McBean,
a Lorax who doggedly speaks for the trees,
and many more friends just as silly as these.
In search of a classic? Come on, make a beeline
for everyone's favorite, the hat-bearing feline.
For here are some things that I'm certain are true -
two things, and I call them Thing 1 and Thing 2:
Thing 1 is that reading is better than not,
so you're far better off the more books that you've got.
Thing 2's an addendum to good old Thing 1:
that reading is better whenever it's fun.
So come into Booksmith! Get off your caboose!
Go home with an armload of everything Seuss!
