A little wish to you, from me:
I hope you enjoyed the thneed factory.
Because you left your kids without sitter or strings,
They were kidnapped by my Things,
(I’m as cunning as I am handsome).
Here’s how you pay the ransom:
Bag all the cash you’ve been makin.
As a signal, include bacon.
Take the money on a train,
And in a plane,
And up a tree.
Then we’ll let your children be.
If it’s not greenbacks and ham,
They’ll be shanked, like Sam-I-Am.
Alert no cop or bureaucrat.
You have 24 hours.
