I enjoyed this piece very much, with its subtle blend of humour and homily. I think all readers could learn from the moral. It is the first of the Ken Harris stories I have read, and I am looking forwards to finding the others.

    Thanks, Katherine - btw, Katherine Kean is a really cool sounding name - would make a great name for a fictional Private Eye.

This is a creative premise, to go into books, stories and plays and warn the characters of danger ahead. I like that some listen and some don't so they pay the consequences. Good job rhyming to keep the Seuss narrative feeling.

    Thanks - I read Yertl the Turtle to my kids hundreds of times when they were little so the rhythm came easy.

-Nice artwork and
nod to Dr. Seuss, Mark.
-I enjoyed this trip into
Yertle land.
-The rhyme is exceptional,
and Dr. Seuss would be very proud.
-You give warnings, explain what is due,
then meet speak with Yertle in
a voice somewhat loud!
-You want him to change;
not be so controlling,
but he thinks he's great.
-He holds down the masses
and takes away rights; they
don't whimper nor do they fight.
-They sit in the stack, from top
to bottom, and figure Yertle
will always be back.
-No need to impeach, just
do it his way, nobody else
has any say.
-But Yertle, he listened
and feared page twenty-two,
and then asked Ken what he could do:
"So maybe it's time to treat Mack as an equal,
Otherwise someone might author a sequel."
-Well done, I enjoyed the story.

This is so precious. How creatively brilliant to write such a fable of wisdom with equally talented poetry to! Dr. Zeus would be so amazed and even a little jealous at this awesome work! Great job! xoxo

Well, good to know that Yurtle had a turn-around and saw the light. Way to go, Ken Harris, hero of the underdog( or underturtle). May he live long and well and right the wrongs in all the worlds. Great rhyming, Mark.

Isn't it marvellous to be turned from an ultra confident, top of the heap, narcissistic turtle into a grateful, humble and happy turtle, is a very real achievement Mark, what a great "Christlike" figure Ken Harris is! Well done, comedy, and very clever dream weaving is your forte' my friend. Excellent job Mark, entertaining and imaginative, well done, blessings, Roy

Oh my land, or should I say swamp, it appears Ken Harris has finally reached his stride.

What marvelous and inventive rhymes such as it and proletariat and O'Hara and Tara. It almost seems as if they were just waiting there to be found and used by Mister Harris.

Totally awesome script and so much alligatorial fun too.

Can't wait for the next installment.

Gloria
