Thoughts on the U.C.C. (With Apologies to Dr. Suess) by Meredith Lauren Zinnecker with help from Tim Zinnecker.
I do not like the U.C.C.
I do not like it, no sirree.
Article I and all its terms?
I think I’d rather eat fried worms.
“Good faith,” I see. But what’s the test?
And what if I’m an atheist?
Don’t care for Sales, not one wit.
Is this a “good”? Don’t give a ___.
A holder in due course, you say?
The pain is back. Please go away!
My dad enjoys them more than sex.
Wire transfers, Article 4?
I’d rather listen to Al Gore.
Letters of credit? Oh how boring.
Read one last night. Started snoring.
Bills of lading? What a drag.
The topic makes me want to gag.
Stocks and bonds. Article 8?
Start without me. I may be late.
Secured Transactions? Not for me.
The topic makes me wanna pee.
The Code just puts me out of sorts.
Would much prefer to study Torts.
I do not hold the Code in awe.
Want something sexy? Try Con Law.
Property sounds kinda cool.
Those future interests make me drool.
Grant Gilmore? Dude, you make no sense.
Civ Pro? Now that’s the class for me.
Not daddy. He received a “D.”
A course that works just like Ex-Lax?
The U.C.C. (And maybe Tax).
The Code is not my friend or pal.
Would much prefer a root canal.
Commercial law? It ain’t for me.
But I still love Professor Z!
