by Dr. Seuss

Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! Lines 41-89 Summary

Lines 41-45

  • The modes of transportation get more elaborate. Stilts, fish, and a Crunk-Car are all available. What's a Crunk-Car? Let's just say you steampunk fans will be ogling in green-eyed envy.

Lines 46-50

  • The traveling arrangements lean a little on the unsafe side. Lion's tail and postage? No thank you.

Lines 51-54

  • A return to the theme of this rant in case it slipped your mind. Still more emphasis building on the "go, Go, GO!" (54).

Lines 55-58

  • The Narrator suggests Marvin might like traveling by Zumble-Zay. Well, we'd sure like to; it looks ridiculously fun.

Lines 59-66

  • Marvin may try balloons like the guy from Up or a broomstick like the old Witch of the West. He can even go "by camel / in a / bureau drawer" (64-66). Wait, what?

Lines 67-71

  • A Bumble-boat and jet are also offered up. At this point, the narrator doesn't care how as long as the going happens.

Lines 71-76

  • Marvin can even leave by a Ga-Zoom. It's our personal favorite. Think Seuss-styled cannon.

Lines 77-81

  • The Narrator doesn't care how anymore. He just wants Marvin to leave and now.

Lines 82-86

  • The Narrator means business. Just look at the font size on those "Go"s.

Lines 87-89

  • The time finally arrives. Marvin leaves. The end.
