Shakespeare isn't the be-all and end-all of course (that's another of his by the way). English has had its fair share of literary giants over the years who, from Chaucer and Milton to Dickens and even Dr. Seuss, have each contributed words to our language.

On Tuesday, during his 21-hour marathon "filibuster" against Obamacare, Senator Ted Cruz read aloud to his daughters back home the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham. But he clearly missed its message. To commemorate the occasion, I wrote this poem.
Hours into his 21-hour-plus speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz gave a reading of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham.
