Celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday
Geisel wrote verse in Trochaic tetrameter, an arrangement of a strong beat followed by a weak beat, with four units per line (for example, the title of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish).
Geisel generally maintained trochaic meter only for brief passages, and for longer stretches typically mixed it with Iambic tetrameter, which consists of a weak beat followed by a strong, and is generally considered easier to write.
Give us your darkest and most twisted versions of such great children's classics as Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham or any other sinister or dark re-imagining of this brilliant and beloved Poet and Writer's popular works, using the same form and style as he did.
Please remember to select the proper settings in your preferences before you post your entry if your work is as good as I hope it is!
Good luck and I can't wait to read these!!--Draven
