His real name was Geisel,
Theodor (with no “e”).
An incredibly generous
Author was he.
An alum from the class of nineteen twenty-five,
They say he gave more than any alive.
And for that they’ll remember him and his wife
(the woman with whom he spent most of his life).
The medical school will carry a plaque
(one you might see if you swallowed a tack
or got mauled by a bear
or a cat in a hat).
