A Sneetch (  after Theodor [Dr] Seuss Geisel )

There are havettes, and have notettes–  
yet in all honesty, without possessions  
who can tell the difference?!

They appear the same shape –  
male and female alike; O! But wait!  
is it a tittle of a title they covet?!    
 
Or, perhaps, in all honesty –  
it’s a jealousy thing ; O! Me!  Why  
clonedingus another Sneetch?  
 
We each have our trinkets – we’re all  
born completus; O! Yet, it’s not enough!  
Some Sneetches choose to be leeches!  
 
Is it fortune, fame they don’t deserve –  
but feel they should; O! Silly Sneetches!  
Stop doppleganging the goods!  
 
No Sneetch is better than another –  
so why copycatador; O! it’s drama  
you seek! Why not live as you are?  
 
Then you'd get no attentioning –  
and wouldn’t feel complete; O! pity  
it is! You strive to be someone else.  
 
One day when you’re not a Sneetchette –  
it's all so befuddling; O! you’ll realize  
how foolish you were when a youngling!  
 
You’ll accept your Sneetchessness –  
live happily to boot; O! what's that?!  
Another Sneetchlet is doppleganging you!  
 
Ha! Take that you Sniveling Sneetch!  
You Sneetching Sniveler!  
 
Sneetches don't have to be the same  
or even close to similar!  
~
