Oh the places you’ll go…

A bunch of my friends graduated college today, hip, hip, hooray, as Sonia would say. To commemmorate this step into the adult world, I thought a poem by Dr. Suess would be fitting:

Congratulations!Today is your day.You’re off to Great Places!You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoesYou can steer yourselfany direction you choose.You’re on your own. And you know what you know.And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Out there things can happenand frequently doto people as brainyand footsy as you.
And when things start to happen,don’t worry. Don’t stew.Just go right along.You’ll start happening too.
OH! THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!

You’ll be on your way up!You’ll be seeing great sights!You’ll join the high flierswho soar to high heights.
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

With banner flip-flapping,once more you’ll ride high!Ready for anything under the sky.Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!
Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!There are points to be scored. there are games to be won.And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all.Fame! You’ll be famous as famous can be,with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

And will you succeed?Yes! You will, indeed!(98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Brayor Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,you’re off to Great Places!Today is your day!Your mountain is waiting.So…get on your way!
