Today's Theme Thursday again. The theme is HAT
I thought that I'd revisit that famous Dr. Seuss children's book "The Cat in the Hat" again. One important traight in todays entertainment reality is that we have to keep introducing sequels until we ruin a good thing. These days everything needs to be overmilked.
Now the Cat in the Hat, he had a successful debut in 1957 and then a successful return in 1958. Imagine if he came back for a reunion after all these years?
Here's how I think it would all go down:
What if the Cat in the Hat came back yet once more?
The children, now grown, wouldn’t behave as before
With jobs and kids, their free time's disappeared
So wanting some fun would most likely feel weird
The whole stacking bit would no longer impress
“Do the dishes instead, they’re quite a big mess”
Instead of worrying about fixing one of his tricks
They’d roll their eyes briefly and feed him Meow mix
If he brought out his box with thing one and thing two
Would they all head downtown to get a brand new tattoo?
And their mother who always left home all alone
Is now alone at the retirement center without even a phone
They’d sold off the old home to a developer in town
Who made a fortune on condos by tearing it down
And Sally demanded that cats A through Z
Get busy mowing the lawn and pruning the tree
His fancy clean up gadget they took while he was sleeping
They claimed such a device needed safekeeping
They patented his device and sold the design away
All to address bills they couldn’t afford to pay
As for the cat in the hat, they shipped him off for breeding
There’s money in that and they no longer need him
Yes...some things SHOULD be left alone...
