The Cat in the Proa

by Dr. Sseuess & John C. Harrah 

 Would you like to tack this boat?


I do not want to tack this craft.
When I shunt the fore is aft.


Would you like to jibe this proa?


I do not jibe, I'd rather shunt, since when I shunt the back is front.


Shunt! Shunt! Bow! Stern!
I do not think I'll ever learn!
Why not tack like normal boats?


I'd rather go to Sea with Goats.


Fore is aft! Back is front!
Give up on this silly Stunt!
