Will You Please Go Now

In 1974 Art Buchwald used this Dr. Seuss piece to prompt the resignation of Richard Nixon. Nixon left the White House 10 days later. Update as required.


By: Dr. Seuss

The time has come,
The time is now.
Just go, go, go!
I don’t care how.

You can go by foot.
You can go by cow.
[Marvin K. Mooney],
will you please go now!

You can go on skates,
you can go on skis.
You can go in a hat.
But please, go please!

I don’t care.
You can go by bike.
You can go on a Zike-Bike
if you like.

If you like, you can go,
in an old blue shoe,
Just go, go go!
Please do, do, do!

[Marvin K. Mooney],
I don’t care how.
[Marvin K. Mooney],
will you please go now?

You can go on stilts,
You can go by fish.
You can go in a Crunk-Car
if you wish.

If you wish you may go
by lion’s tail
Or stamp yourself
and go by mail.

[Marvin K. Mooney]!
Don’t you know
the time has come,
so  GO, GO, GO!

Get on your way!
Please, [Marvin K]!
You might like going
in a Zumble-Zay!

You can go by balloon…or broomstick.
OR you can go by camel in a bureau drawer.
You can go by bumble boat…or jet…
I don’t care how you go, just GET!

Get yourself a Ga-Zoom.
You can go with a….BOOM!
[Marvin], [Marvin], [Marvin],
Will you leave this room!

[Marvin K. Mooney], I don’t care HOW!
[Marvin K. Mooney], will you please GO NOW!

I said GO and GO I meant,
The time had come.
SO…[Marvin] went.

  1. DJT, the nation spoke
    Now disappear in a puff of smoke.
    Or sneak out back by the secret door
    Just disappear forevermore.

    We’re all tired, exhausted, really
    By your antics, your touchy-feely.
    Your bloated ego, and, oh, the lies
    Your orange head should be twice it’s size.

    Mr President (a term I use lightly)
    You didn’t win (not even slightly).
    So pack that clown car, one last time
    And leave town, but on your own dime.

    I wish that you could get this mail
    But things get censored when you’re in jail.
    Now go! Be gone! Just get lost!
    We’ve had enough of a grifter boss.
