Happy Birthday Mr. Theodor Seuss Geisel!!!

Friday, March 2nd, is the 114th anniversary of the birth of the incredible Mr. Theodor Seuss Geisel, known to millions (if not billions) of people as simply, Dr. Seuss.

The first Dr. Seuss book I recall reading was, “Horton Hears a Who,” which taught me, “a person is a person, no matter how small.”

I don’t know if Dr. Seuss every attended a Feis, but if he did, I’d like to think this is what he might of said about it….

One Feis Two Feis

One Feis
Two Feis
Old Feis
New Feis

From there to here
From here to there
You’ll find a Feis most anywhere!

This Feis isn’t very far.
You can get there in a car!
Leave the house at half past five
And drive
And drive
And drive
And drive!

Get there early
To check the stages
Some of which
Are quite outrageous!
Duct tape squares on linoleum floors
Are sure to help those “slip” jig scores!
And dancers have a frisky day,
On polished floors of wood parquet!

Long wait to dance?
Go check the vendors!
(If you have some legal tender).
Bloomers, Scrungies, Headbands, Wigs
Hardshoes for your Treble Jig!
Custom Shirts,
Made just for you
Toes Tan Butter
And Sock Glue Too!
The one thing sure to make us snicker,
An Irish Dancing Bumper Sticker!

Snatch your dress,
And grab your wig!
You’re up next in the Treble Jig!
Point your toe and lift your chin,
Do you best Feis eating grin!
Heels in, toes out, mind the beat!
Feels like you have two left feet!

North
South
East
West
Which Feis do you think is best?

Some Feis have no place to park,
Others have long lines for marks!
Some Feis have high entry fees,
And some Feis have long lines to pee!

From there to here
From here to there
You’ll find a Feis most anywhere!

Happy Birthday Doctor Seuss!!
