The Cat in the Hat & The Bureaucrat Rats

The Cat in the Hat & The Bureaucrat Rats

you read,

the more things

you will know.


you learn, &
the more places


Oh dear .. the “cancel culture” gods are loose

And now they’re coming for dear Dr. Seuss

Please tell me what’s wrong with “The Cat in the Hat”

.. only ogres & rats could create problems like that ..

“Oh dear!” said the cat. “You do not like our game
.. Oh dear .. What a shame! .. What a shame!” (Dr. Seuss)

Oh dear “cancel culture” .. we do not like your GAME

You want to make everything and everyone the SAME

It’s NEVER you .. for everyone else is always to BLAME

Now that dear ones .. that’s a shame .. a dreadful SHAME !!

“Now! Now! Have no fear!” said the cat

“My tricks are not bad,” said the Cat in the Hat. (Dr. Seuss)

Even a cat knows a TRICK when it’s clear

We will stand up .. we will NOT have fear

But hear this .. “we are on to your tricks”

And you are NOT some cat in some hat

Rather dear bureaucrat .. a form of a rat

Your habitat is with the snakes in “The Swamp”

Who much love their “circumstance and pomp”

Furthermore ..

We shall not abide ..

All the LIES you have LIED

We will not climb aboard .. your RIDICULOUS ride

We will not DISAPPEAR or under some hat try to hide

We will NOT be swept along by your TRECHEROUS tide

No matter how many times you have treacherously tried

You are maleficently MISGUIDED and on the wrong side

Dear censor police .. we say “FORSOOTH”

Even creatures like cats can see your truth

And 1 learned there are troubles
Of more than onc kind

Some come from shesd

And some come from behind

But I've bought bug but
Fen all ready, you see.

Now my troubles arc going
To have troubles wth me

“You can find magic wherever you LOOK.

Sit back and RELAX, all you need is a BOOK.” - Dr Seuss


you're off to great places,
Today is your day!

oUF MOUNLaj waiting:

So. get on your way!

Books should be shared for ALL to READ & to see

Please hear our shout .. this is called “LIBERTY”

Furthermore ..

I may not like Green Eggs & Ham

But I dearly love .. sweet “Sam, I am”

Regarding .. Oh, The Places You’ll Go

Dear cancel trolls .. you should knowingly .. know

A DULL mind will CANCEL your ability to GROW

Furthermore ..

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

All the WHO’s down in Whoville

Already knew this to be TRUE

In the end, the Grinch’s tiny heart grew

There are lessons for WHO’s’ .. whoever you are

FOOLISHNESS is a very .. very .. very LOW bar

And FOOLS never .. EVER .. get very far

When you head is too big & your heart is “two sizes too small”

Your path becomes crooked & you are in for a “free-for-all”

When WISDOM is lost .. WOE is sure to befall

Furthermore ..

Know this: when you reward bad behavior, it GROWS

THEN it DEMANDS .. exerting itself unrelentingly

BEWARE & be aware

The list of what is deemed unacceptable will grow

.. Tearing down statues

.. renaming (empty) schools

.. cancelling shows like “Cops” (30 years on the air)

.. telling you what books are not acceptable for your children

Paw Patrol .. is deemed “pro-cop propaganda”

.. even Kids cartoons

.. are not immune

People need to WAKE-UP .. resist .. fight back

For without question .. we are under attack

.. the spirit it carries .. will have its way

.. it seems to increase every day

The “gods that lay down rules”

.. they think that you are FOOLS

Will you appease these gods .. who dictate what you should do

.. if you do not comply .. oh, the PUNISHMENT you shall rue

The “cancel culture” sets themselves up like The Elders in The Giver (Lois Lowry)

A children’s book about yet another man-made utopia. This one is prescient.

The children are schooled in “SAMENESS” .. sound familiar?

PLIED into political CORRECTNESS. 

These culture transforming “gods”

.. define words for you

.. explain to you what to understand .. how to understand

.. how to apply what they are persistently pouring over you


.. CONFORMING you & your children to their pattern.

Their mission is unrelentingly ..

It is insidious .. treacherous .. and woefully WICKED

Their fountain of hate & race-baiting is an evil spigot

Their mission is your mindset 

BEWARE & be aware

The “cancel culture” gods will MISGUIDE you

BRAINWASH you until you see things as they do

They are BLIND-guides bent on conforming you to their thinking

With “closed-eyes & hard-hearts” they will woe-fully define:

.. Who & what is “racially insensitive”

.. What is morally right

.. What truth is

What happens when the moral compass is aimed so low that the target is cartoon characters?

The result is “Looney Tunes" .. cartoon politics & cartoon politicians




IMHO: Cartoon politicians make poor preachers

They do not hear the people’s cries

They smile and cheat and wisdom dies

Stupid logic… stupid math

Stupid leader’s …stupid path

Stupid people …eyes are closed

Spending, spending… spending grows

“Can’t see the forest for the trees”

Thoughts corrupted .. hearts deceived

“Choice” and “change” and “forward” please

April 1st 2021 .. an ode to fools

Note: I am aware that the Dr. Seuss books noted in my post-poem are not included among those to be “retired” from book shelves because they are deemed “hurtful & wrong” by the cancel culture gods.

I just happen to LIKE the books I chose and Dr. Seuss

.. Dr. Seuss has got their goose ..

The backlash has been brewing since 2019, when researchers Katie Ishizuka and Ramón Stephens published a study in the journal “Research on Diversity in Youth Literature” entitled “The Cat Is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, Anti-Blackness, and White Supremacy in Dr. Seuss’s Children’s Books,” deeming them vehicles of “white supremacy.”


“I am the voice of Speedy Gonzales in the new Space Jam. Does this mean they are gonna try to cancel Fluffy too? U can’t catch me cancel culture. I’m the fastest mouse in all of Mexico,” the 44-year-old actor — and star of Netflix’s “Mr. Gabriel Iglesias” 



"In His Light" .. I write

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … I enjoy bantering with other BEES … please know, your feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My caring nature makes me an advocate. My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I am a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of beauty … I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf.

Jerry Fletcher My sincere apology Jerry for delay in responding .. many things "press in" I had to read a couple times: "Could not agree more" .. that made me SMILE All "viewpoints" are human-opinion Many things can be found under proverbial rugs .. but never would "innocence" be there. History is a wise teacher .. what the world lacks is students. "If you reject the history of the past ... refuse to remember its lessons ... then you diminish your future." ~ fem-v “If the present tries to judge the past, it will lose the future. All men make mistakes but only wise men learn from their mistakes” ~ Winston Churchill "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act." ~ George Orwell People are always looking for what THEY think should be .. not what is true (or Truth) “Only deluded people think that moving the hands on the face of a clock changes the time.” ~ fem-v Such delusion is self-deception (the worst form of deception) Deluded: believing something that is not true ... not believing truth https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/the-giver-the-takers

Fay, Could not agree more. the blue noses morph over the years but it all comes down to the belief that theirs is the only acceptable viewpoint. In their view history should not be given any credence. Viewpoints that were the majority's at the time must be hidden away to assure we don't see hear or otherwise experience them. But the dirty little secret is that you don't assure innocence by sweeping things under a rug. The only real cure is to bring it into the sun warts and all and show why it is no longer the way the majority sees things. There will always be a minority that maintains the muck but they should be subject ot the law for any act against an innocent.
