Great fun! Oh, this was priceless, particularly the part about possibly sharing the king's son. That was great. Loved all the slightly altered words and the Seuss rhythm. Good job.

I must say, Mirkwood described by Seuss was quite witty and funny. This was a cute poem--pity you can't get an elf for it, eh? :-)

I nearly stopped, then I realised it was Dr. S and then I laughed, actually out loud at: (And if you are lucky they’ll share the king’s son!) Funny.

*snork* An amusing blend of pastisches, though not quite a crossover.

This is hilarious! I love Dr. Seuss, and I love parodies done in his style!
