Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
A Poem By Dr Seuss
“If we didn’t have
birthdays,
you wouldn’t be
you.
If you’d never been
born,
well then what would
you do?
If you’d never been
born,
well then what would
you be?
You might be a
fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.”
“Or worse than all
that…
Why, you might be a
WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, he doesn’t.A
Wasn’t just isn’t.
He just isn’t present.
But you…You A
RE YOU!
And, now isn’t that pleasant!”
“Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive…
…who is youer than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky
to be what I am!
Thank goodness
I’m not just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!
That’s a great thing to be!
If I say so myself,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
TO ME!”
