Excerpts from The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
He snapped, “I’m the Lorax who speaks for the trees
which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.
But I’m also in charge of the Brown Bar-ba-loots
who play in the shade in their Bar-ba-loot suits
and happily lived, eating Truffula Fruits.”
“NOW . . . thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground
there’s not enough Truffula Fruit to go ’round.
And my poor Bar-ba-loots are all getting the crummies
because they have gas, and no food, in their tummies!”
“They loved living here. But I can’t let them stay.
They have to find food. And I hope that they may.
Good luck, boys,” he cried. And he sent them away.
. . .
“You’re glumping the pond where the Humming-Fish hummed!
No more can they hum, for their gills are all gummed.
So I’m sending them off. Oh their future is dreary.
They’ll walk on their fins and get woefully weary
in search of some water that isn’t so smeary.”
