Dr. Seuss Essay on Auditing Updated

Continuing my tradition of posting holiday disclaimers or what-not, here’s the intro of a funny take on Dr. Seuss by Lawrence Heim of Elm Sustainability Partners:

Oh, the jobs people work at!

Out west near Hawtch-Hawtch
there’s a Hawtch-Hawtcher Bee-Watcher. His job is to watch…
is to keep both his eyes on the lazy town bee. A bee that is watched will work harder, you see.

Well… he watched and he watched. But, in spite of his watch,
that bee didn’t work any harder. Not mawtch.

So then somebody said,
“Our old bee-watching man
just isn’t bee-watching as hard as he can.
He ought to be watched by another Hawtch-Hawtcher!
The thing that we need
is a Bee-Watcher-Watcher!”


The Bee-Watcher-Watcher watched the Bee-Watcher.
He didn’t watch well. So another Hawtch-Hawtcher
had to come in as a Watch-Watcher-Watcher!

And today all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch
are watching on Watch-Watcher-Watchering-Watch,
Watch-Watching the Watcher who’s watching that bee.

You’re not a Hawtch-Watcher. You’re lucky, you see!”
