when judge receives an egg that's loose, judge writes a verse like Dr. Seuss

When a prison inmate recently mailed a hard-boiled egg to federal magistrate judge James R. Muirhead of New Hampshire, the judge registered his objection, borrowing inspiration from a famous Dr. Seuss story, Green Eggs and Ham (a story famous in part for being composed of only 50 different words). According to CBS News and the Associated Press, the magistrate penned the following opinion:

I do not like eggs in the file.
I do not like them in any style.
I will not take them fried or boiled.
I will not take them poached or broiled.
I will not take them soft or scrambled
Despite an argument well-rambled.

No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Destroy that egg!
Today! Today!
Today I say! Without delay!
