Dr Sues, We Hardly Knew Ye...

Poem by Jason Elster

It appears I feel I must break a pattern.
This new layout I feel will start to madden.
But fear not
For this is just a one off
And I’d quite like to go off on a tangent.
The poet I admire the most would be Dr Sues.
The creatures he creates are extremely crude.
But what I really like is how he makes every last word rhyme.
That must take up a lot of his time.
Was Dr Sues really a Doctor?
