Lorax Inc. (Apologies to Dr. Seuss) by Gar Smith
The Lorax Goes Hollywood
My name is the Lorax and I speak for the trees.
So how'd I get sucked up in Hollywood sleaze?
My message was lost in the Stremulous Stream!
Even Swomee-swans told me to "Get with the Team!"
The Grinch (who stole Christmas) got all the attention
Why TV? Why Movies? Why all this Big Mention?
Because he's defeated, so Whos can start shopping!
But me? I'm ignored because I'd stop chopping.
So, how come the hokum? Why tell kids to drive
Their parents to buy a Mazda CX-5?
'Cause I am the Lorax! I push SUVs!
(And IHOP's "Mac n' Cheese & Trufula Trees!")
I once scorned the Once-ler and all his pollution.
