Dr Seuss on the Juice (as performed by Dr. John)



When I read Kafka

I get wasted on Vodka,


Though Mr. William Faulkner

Go better with Johnnie Walker.


Can’t do Proust

With no gin in my juice.


Obviously, Guinness be the choice

When I open up my Joyce.


(Finnegan’s Wake sober

Mean a walloping hangover).


Never do Virginia Woolf

Unless the bottle say 100 proof.


Nobel Laureate TS Eliot

Requires an even stronger inebriant.


And remember,

if you want to stay alive,

Don’t read and drive.
