Sarah J. Carrier: Bad news Cruz making us blue

September 27, 2013 

I do not like Cruz here or there

Dr. Seuss, I’m afraid there’s bad news.

Your poems were co-opted by Cruz.

His efforts to stall

Senate business for all,

An attempt to force tea party views.

Dr. Seuss, I sure know you’d be sad.

Denying kids’ health care is bad.

Cruz’s efforts for fame

Serve to ruin his name

Denying society health care is mad.

Sarah J. Carrier, Chapel Hill
