On Being the Mayor of Whoville…


The poor Who Mayor had big troubles for sure,
Although his whole planet was miniature.

A little man running a family and planet,
Which other Who parents just took for granted.

Whoville’s always been small, but not due to shrinking.
The Mayor’s real woe was that his son JoJo was Thinking!

His thinks were abnormal, so big and fantastic,
The Mayor was ready to do something drastic.

Then JoJo saved his small town with a Yopp
Then Mayor realized he was a super proud Pop.

He learned not to question this affinity to Think,
And instead decided they work better in sync.

No Think is wrong, no dream or idear.
It’s how small folks let us know they are here. _____________________________________________
