Dr. Seuss Too Political for School?

 

A school board in B.C. has declared “too far!”

For a teacher had a Dr. Seuss quote in her car.

They peered through the window and suddenly spied

the terrible saying they could not abide:

“I know at the top you are seeing great sights,

but down at the bottom we too should have rights.”

Yertle stood on the others to see from the crest,

ignoring the fact that they needed a rest.

Perhaps the government should take their cue

from Seuss lest they end up with mud-faces too.
