Dr. Seuss Presents THE ZAX

one day, making tracks

in the prairie of prax,

came a north-going zax

and a south-going zax.

and it happened that both of them came to a place

where they bumped. there they stood.

foot to foot. face to face.

'look here, now!' the north-going zax said. 'I say!

you are blocking my path. you are right in my way.

I'm a north-going zax and I always go north.

get out of my way, now, and let me go forth!'

'who's in whose way?' snapped the south-going zax.

'I always go south, making south-going tracks.

so you're in MY way! and I ask you to move

and let me go south in my south-going groove.'

then the north-going zax puffed his chest up with pride.

'I never,' he said, 'take a step to one side.

and I'll prove to you that I wont change my ways

if I have to keep standing here fifty nine days!'

'and I'll prove to YOU,' yelled the south-going zax,

'that I can stand here in the prairie of prax

for fifty nine YEARS! for I live by a rule

that I learned as a boy back in south-going school

NEVER BUDGE! that's my rule. NEVER BUDGE IN THE LEAST!

NOT AN INCH TO THE WEST! NOT AN INCH TO THE EAST!

I'll stay here, not budging! I can and I will

if it makes you and me and the whole world stand still!'

well...

of course the world DIDN'T stand still. the world grew.

in a couple of years, the new highway came through

and they built it right over those two stubborn zax

and left them there, standing un-budged in their tracks.
