    Cool Socioneetches

    “My friends”, he announced in a voice clear and clean,
    “My name is Sylvester McMonkey McBean.
    And I’ve heard of Your troubles. I’ve heard you’re unhappy.
    But I can fix that, I’m the Fix-It-Up Chappie.

    I’ve come here to help you.
    I have what you need.
    And my prices are low. And I work with great speed.
    And my work is one hundred per cent guaranteed!”

    Then, quickly, Sylvester McMonkey McBean
    Put together a very peculiar machine.
    And he said, “You want stars like a Star-Belly Sneetch?
    My friends, you can have them for three dollars each!”

    “Just pay me your money and hop right aboard!”
    So they clambered inside. Then the big machine roared.
    And it klonked. And it bonked. And it jerked. And it berked.
    And it bopped them about. But the thing really worked!
    When the Plain-Belly Sneetches popped out, they had stars!
    They actually did. They had stars upon thars!

    Then they yelled at the ones who had stars at the start,
    “We’re still the best Sneetches and they are the worst.
    But now, how in the world will we know”, they all frowned,
    “If which kind is what, or the other way round?”

    Then up came McBean with a very sly wink.
    And he said, “Things are not quite as bad as you think.

    So you don’t know who’s who. That is perfectly true.
    But come with me, friends. Do you know what I’ll do?
    I’ll make you, again, the best Sneetches on the beaches.
    And all it will cost you is ten dollars eaches.”

    “Belly stars are no longer in style”, said McBean.
    “What you need is a trip through my Star-Off Machine.
    This wondrous contraption will take OFF your stars
    so you won’t look like Sneetches that have them on thars.”
    And that handy machine working very precisely
    Removed all the stars from their tummies quite nicely.

    Then, with snoots in the air, they paraded about.
    And they opened their beaks and they let out a shout,
    “We know who is who! Now there Isn’t a doubt.
    The best kind of Sneetches are Sneetches without!”

    Then, of course, those with stars got all frightfully mad.
    To be wearing a star was frightfully bad.
    Then, of course, old Sylvester McMonkey McBean
    invited THEM into his Star-Off Machine.

    Then, of course from THEN on, as you probably guess,
    Things really got into a horrible mess.

    All the rest of that day, on those wild screaming beaches,
    The Fix-It-Up Chappie kept fixing up Sneetches.
    Off again! On again! In again! Out again!
    Through the machines they raced round and about again,

    Changing their stars every minute or two. They kept paying money.
    They kept running through until the Plain nor the Star-Bellies knew
    Whether this one was that one or that one was this one. Or which one
    Was what one or what one was who.

    Then, when every last cent of their money was spent,
    The Fix-It-Up Chappie packed up. And he went.
    And he laughed as he drove In his car up the beach,
    “They never will learn. No. You can’t Teach a Sneetch!”

    But McBean was quite wrong. I’m quite happy to say.
    That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day.
    The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches.
    And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
    That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars and whether
    They had one, or not, upon thars.

    Is that Lewis Carroll or Dr. Seuss?
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.
