Green Eggs and Solitude

Green Eggs and Solitude

A Poem by W.R. Singleton

If Dr. Seuss were crazy


I just ate breakfast, green eggs and goose
I've scrambled my brain on Dr. Seuss
I flip, I flop
I blip and I blop
Alone in my padded room

The voices they call, they call my name
With shouts of malaise, Hooray! Hooray!
A knock at my door
My ear to the floor
Alone in my padded room

I've found the small hole in the wall
That I planned to open and crawl
With dreams of escape
I fell back through the grate
Alone in my padded room

I just happened to find my shoelace
Wrapped tight 'round my neck and my face
I hop on one foot
Face covered in soot
Alone in my padded room
