Though the film, in its credits, acknowledges Seuss

The connection to his story is really quite loose

A high profile picture blessed with the green

And a portly Mike Myers, who chews every scene

The premise is there, but the spirit is gone

And the question it raises is "what were they on?"

Whether you'll enjoy Cat is not for me to tell

But those who can't yet spell the title may well
