The Lorax Sequel
By Georgia and Maddie

“So…Catch!” calls the once-ler
He lets something fall
It’s a truffula seed
It’s the last one of all
You’re in charge of the last of the truffula seeds
And truffula trees are what everyone needs
Plant a new truffula, treat it with care
Give it clean water and feed it fresh air
Grow a forest protect it from axes that hack
Then the lorax
And all of his friends
May come back.”

So off ted went with the seed in his hand
An idea in his head, and no greed in his plan
He left for a place where the sky is blue
With a small patch of sunlight

Out at this Ted that had made a loud squeak
The humming fish glanced as the Swomee- Swans shrieked;
‘We’ll help you dear Ted plant your little Truffula seed!’

As the Truffula tree slowly grew,
More and more animals returned too
To help little Ted and his crew
Mature a forest creating a new world for me and you

So let the word know, call them in
We’ll live all together as kin
In little huts up in those truffula tufts
Where thneeds are still made
And no trees will be slayed
By taking those tufts a little
And using nothing but whittle
Leaving the tufts to restore
In their glory and awe
To create a balance that no one can flaw

Up in the clouds The lorax did grin
The place we created that is...
