The Lorax: Epilogue

That Truffula seed never sprouted again.
The Lorax stayed lifted with all of his friends.
The waters were poisoned, the skies remained black,
And none of the Bar-ba-loots ever came back.
High up in his Lerkim, the Once-ler alerted
His whole corporate family, who deftly perverted
The words of the Lorax, who spoke for the trees
So fat jerks at Mazda could sell S.U.V.’s
And patsies could shovel, twixt slack eager lips,
IHOP’s lousy pancakes with “Truffula Chips.”
And down in the dirt, soaked in toxins and diesel,
Reposes, unknowing, that sad old man Geisel
A cheap shill for sugary crap and pollution,
And only an ass would pretend that it’s Seussian.

…with Apologies to Dr.Seuss


About nitrovonborax

The Mighty Arthammer of von Borax strikes the Anvil of Universal Consciousness, forging Iconic Singularities of Metaphor. Nitro von Borax is widely recognized as the natural heir to the crumbling facade of an empire that Thomas Kinkade built with massmarket hack-retouched cottagey papscapes, which glow as though lit by pernicious chip-grease fires within and trigger pleasurable dissociative transport to the plebian viewer. Mr. von Borax, known to his discerning, sophisticated & politically progressive fans as "The Painter of Sprinkly Sparkles," pulls inspiration from Betty & Veronica BOTH, stolen travel brochures & comic books, Martin Denny & Italian Giallo Movies to visualize and manifest pure unfettered awesomeness for your astral excursions. His portfolio resonates at a frequency only bats can hear.

    If you don’t own the original to show your brood, I have a VHS of it you can borrow.
