Thank you Lynn E. Harvey for the spotlight!

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 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 won’t 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!”

    The hysterical part is that these look just like Zax (es - hmmmm). If I had a nickel for everytime I read Seuss to myself, my kids or my grandkids, I could pay off the US debt to China. I gave each one of my kids and grandkids 'Oh the Places You'll Go' for graduation.

    'It's opener there in the wide open air'... kinda' like your snap.
