I will not eat them in the rain.
I will not eat them on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I will not eat them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them ANYWHERE!

I do not like green eggs and ham!
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

You do not like them. So you say.
Try them! Try them!And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

Sam! If you will let me be,
I will try them. You will see.

Say! I like green eggs and ham!
I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!
And I would eat them in a boat.
And I would eat them with a goat...

And I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good, so good, you see!

So I will eat them in a box.
And I will eat them with a fox.
And I will eat them in a house.
And I will eat them with a mouse.
And I will eat them here and there.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

I do so like
green eggs and ham!
Thank you!
Thank you, Sam-I-am!

Upon a thorough and detailed analysis of Dr. Seuss' seminal work, Green Eggs and Ham, I have come to the conclusion that it explores feelings of reticence in trying new things, but upon summoning the courage to do so, the joy of discovering a new delight results in gratitude toward the entity encouraging one to try it in the first place.

So to apply this lesson in real life, it may be advisable to actually try something before spending 21 hours talking to an empty room about how much you don't like it. Or if you do, maybe avoid reading a story that is about the exact opposite of that.
