Happy Birthday Green Eggs and Ham

Happy Birthday Green Eggs and Ham

The Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham turns fifty today. Here’s my way of saying Happy Birthday…

You’re not so old
Green Eggs and Ham
Could I be so bold
Sam I am?

I could not
Would not
Eat some cake
I would not
Will not
With a rake

I would not eat it
On a plate
I will not help you
Celebrate

Not in a park
Not filled with glee
Not in a bar
It just can’t be

I’ll not like you getting old
I’ll not like it if you’re cold
I hope it does not make you sad
I do not like it, not a tad

I can’t believe
You’re fifty now
But, you don’t look it
Anyhow

You’re not so old
Green Eggs and Ham
If I could be so bold
Sam I am

You’re not so old now
So I say
Blow them, blow them and you’ll see
There are some candles, but not fif-ty

Sam, if you’ll indulge me
I will try to make you see
I like you, like you Sam I am
I do, I like you Green Eggs and Ham

And I would eat your birthday cake
And I would eat it with a rake
I do so like you Sam I am
Happy Birthday, Green Eggs and Ham

If you want to see how a real pro handles birthday wishes, here is Jesse Jackson’s classic rendition of Green Eggs and Ham.

It’s pure poetry.
