SEUSS, Dr. Autograph manuscript poem "Never Bite Your Denstist," La Jolla, n.d., ca 1970s. 1 page, 4to, on Seuss's stationery, slightly faded along left edge.
A very witty poem by Dr. Seuss, "Never Bite Your Dentist," reading:
Oh, never bite your dentist
when he seems to poke and shove.
He's merely trying to help you
with the fingertips of Love.
No. Never bite your dentist
whilst he fumbles in your head.
He's your Best Friend and Your Mother.
Go bite Tricky Dick instead.
Autograph manuscripts of any kind by Seuss are very scarce.
