Wild Thing

Mr. Sendak, Mr. Sendak,
You’re indeed a breed apart,
A cantankerous curmudgeon
Since you let your rumpus start!

You’re a man of depth and vision,
Though a few have thought it wrong
That you penned the tale of Mickey
And portrayed him with a dong!

In fifty years of wondrous works,
You’ve never shied away
From angst and sadness, fear and woe.
(And you yourself so gay!)

You’ve silenced carping critics
And you even dissed Colbert!
As modern children’s authors go,
You’re Ouside Over There!
