The Lorax is what? The Lorax is whose?
The Lorax is property of late Dr. Seuss!
Yes, he is the Lorax who speaks for the trees,
Which factory farms will chop down as they please.
Now someone has taken the Lorax away
From the doctor's dear widow, or so people say.
OK, it's a statue—though that hardly counts
Since our planet still suffers in massive amounts.
The Lorax may speak for the truffula trees,
But the Amazon basin plants—who speaks for these?
It's meat and it's dairy—it's honey and eggs,
Earth hardly stands on its last pair of legs.
Buckets of chicken are bad like those big SUVs;
No cutlet's as lovely as truffula trees.
No more should the wild plants all be cut down
all over town.
So PETA has offered a bird figurine
To stand in for the Lorax, who's so pure and so "green."
We hope Mrs. Geisel will take in our bust,
and chickens all crumble to dust.
For he is the Lorax—he'll yell and he'll shout
'Til all Earth's animals will run out.
You want to be friends with the air, Earth, and water?
Then simply go vegan—with son and with daughter.
P.S. For another take on Dr. Seuss and vegan living, check this out.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
