Dr. Seuss on Y2K
Author: Jenine Stanley 1998

"Coming soon!
It's Y2K!
Y2K to make your day!"

"I will not deal with Y2K.
So will you kindly go away?"

"But Y2K is here to stay!
You cannot make it go away!
The days go by.
The weeks do fly
And panic will soon rule the sky!
So here it comes then, Y2K!
You will not make it go away!"

"I will not deal with Y2K.
I will ignore it anyway!
I will not find it rules the sky
And Mr. I will tell you why.
Because we live in modern day.
They can fix this Y2K."

"They cannot fix it all in time.
The streets will fill with dark and crime!
Here it comes! Y2K!
Will you not prepare today?"

"I will not deal with Y2K!
Prepare for what? No how, no way!
All the planes will surely fly.
Terror will not rule the sky.
Crime will not rise. No one will die!
Mr., take your Y2K
And please oh please do go away!"

"I worn you now of Y2K.
The lights will go and off they'll stay!
You will not get any mail!
All ATM's will surely fail!
It's coming soon, this Y2K!
Listen up! Attention pay!"

"I will not deal with Y2K!
I will not now, so go away!
All the planes will surely fly.
Terror will not rule the sky!
All the lights will still be on.
Law and order won't be gone.
I will still receive my mail.
ATM's? They never fail.
Why harp about this Y2K?
Where'd you get this nonsense anyway?"

"It's coming soon now, Y2K!
It's almost like the Judgment Day!"
These facts are good. I know it's so!
I heard it on the Art Bell Show!
They say chaos will rein supreme!
And of these days we'll only dream!
We'll fight for water, food and gas!
Those not prepared can kiss my -- left earlobe!"

"You are a looney! Y2K!
Give it up and go away!
The planes will fly.
The mail will run.
Now what is that?
You've bought a gun?"

"I bought a gun for Y2K!
I'll be prepared to shoot you, eh?
You just don't get it
Things will stop!
Everyone will be a cop.
When this hits all for themselves!
I'm storing food here on the shelves!
So listen close 'bout Y2K.
Get ready! It is on its way!"

"I will not deal with Y2K!
Shut up now Fool! Be on your way!
I made sure I won't lose my socks!
I paid Bill Gates to fix this box.
A new upgrade and I'm good to go.
Y2K compatible, you know.
So give it up
You paranoid freak!
Stop being weird!
You're such a geek!
Come on, really. Y2K.
Get over it. Upgrade today!"

"Call me a fool on Y2K?
Oh Friend now listen up, today!
Upgrades are fine for there at home
But Uncle Sam is clueless, so
The government will seize up fast.
Without computers they can't last.
No weapons controls, tanks or bombs
A sitting duck we will become!
And all this cause of Y2K!
Tell me now, get on my way?"

"I will not deal with Y2K.
I'll sigh at you and simply say.
Our enemies wouldn't be so bold.
Their computers all are old!
Y2k might wipe them out.
Now that thought makes me want to shout!
No enemies, not bad I say.
And all because of Y2K?
So my little looney friend
This Y2K, it will not end
Life as we know it, don't you see?
Now will you please stop bugging me?"

"But soon you'll see this Y2K
Effect your life in many ways!
All your taxes soon wil go
To code writers who are working so
That the Feds can keep things running.
Guys like me are out there gunning!
We are ready. We are near!
Y2K is almost here!"

"I will not deal with Y2K!
I will not, so go on your way!
I've told you I do not believe!
Total chaos I cannot conceive!
The government wouldn't let that go!
They're right on this, I know! I know!
Planes will fly. Banks will make change.
Put down that gun. Stop acting strange!
Listen Honey, come to bed.
All of this is in your head.
I'll help you forget about Y2K.
Tomorrow's another working day."
