Aristotle Meets Dr. Seuss

Check out this amazing Dr. Seuss-style rhyme by Hanah at Purr Se. In her words:

I was going through some of my papers from college this morning and found something I thought would be generally amusing. I took a class on Aristotle at Haverford which had 60 or 70 students in it - a huge number for such a small school. To make sure we were keeping up with the material, the professor had us write a one-page explanation of each week's reading assignment. I got bored after a while and wrote one in the style of a Dr. Seuss poem. The following refers to Aristotle's Metaphysics VII 1031a 15-28.
