S for Suess, I guess

Thanks to Indigo's poem which I blogged a while back, Isomeme reports:
I'm hearing T. S. Eliot in a head-on collision with Dr. Seuss:

I would not dare to eat a peach
I would not walk upon the beach
I could not hear the mermaids sing
I could not see the love you bring

I say it now without a pause
I should have been a pair of claws!
Hmmnn. Is "Prufrock" the most alluded poem in modern English literature? "The Raven" probably beats it out, but combined with Suess, the pair might come out on top.
