Dan is spending a week as a house-dog and has fallen in love, so he wrote - well, OK, dictated - a poem about it. And hey, if the rhymes and cadence aren't exactly on point, well waddya expect - he's just a dog!
I am Dan, Dan I am
Dan the dog I am, I am
My favorite things are NOT green eggs and ham,
green eggs and ham are fine for Sam,
but not for Dan, Dan I am,
Dan the dog I am, I am.
Green eggs and ham are fine for some,
but the feeling I like on my tum
the things I like most under my bum....
are cushions, cushions, CUSHIONS!
I like Cushions that are puffy,
I like Cushions that are fluffy,
I like Cushions puffy, fluffy and stuffy.
I like cushions on the couch, I like cushions on the floor,
green or red, round or square, I like cushions galore.
But the cushions where I like most to rest,
the cushions I like the very best,
the cushions where I like to lay my head,
are on the barn lady's big soft bed.
