Green Eggs And Ham, A Jazz Poetry Performance by Martha Graham Cracker

Some of my favorite poetry is Dr. Seuss.

So when I read in this Huffington Post article that a drag performer had been

invited to read a children's book to a New Jersey after-school kids program -- and then disinvited for being an "inappropriate" choice --

and then was invited instead by Philadelphia's Christ Church Neighborhood House to read Dr. Seuss's classic "Green Eggs and Ham" in front of an enthusiastic and appreciative crowd of children, I had to see it.

It's quite marvelous, and a wonderful way to continue celebrating National Poetry Month.

And so I give you...

Dr. Seuss. A Cabaret Drag Legend. Squalling Children. And An Inspired Jazz Reading...
