Don’t Be A Pusi is a series of poems inspired by the cancel culture of Dr Seuss. Subtitled: For entitled teens and their traumatized parents, these books tackle the serious issues surrounding parenting in America in 2021.
The books recognize the realities that the difficult process of learning self-discipline and hard work based strategies to overcome unfairness and failure, highly increase an individual’s chances of living a happy and fulfilling life. They warn parents and teens alike, against developing bad patterns of avoidance behavior and short term thinking strategies that ultimately lead to disappointment, regret and ultimately failure.
Using shocking language often heard used by many teens themselves, these stories encourage hard work and accountability while delivering the message in a sing song poetic humorous way.

Don’t be a Pusi....
And when I say that,
I don’t mean a cat,
But more like a grossly over-fed rat.
I mean be a woman or a man, not a louse.
Act politely with pleasure, or get out of my house.
For the last few decades, I’ve noticed a trend
where we parents are desperate to be our kids’ friends.
Now a friend is good, important, and true
But can become an ingredient for a mean witches’ brew.
What you kids need to model, to follow, to mimic,
Is a strong parent, not some new gimmick.
Not a new age theory letting kids have their way,
Hoping they’ll get by late at night, while you sit home and pray.
A Mom who’s a boss, a Dad who’s a dude, Who doesn’t allow you to be fucking rude.
Don’t ask what your parents can do for you,
But rather say” hey Mom, Dad - what can I do?”
As babies you started so sweet so serene.. Our parents warned “Just Wait!
we questioned, “what do you mean?”
We started to tolerate small baby fits Suddenly staring at teens with braces and zits
We kept you around despite all common sense We didn’t plan ahead to our defense!
It’s not meant to be bad. Just dont make us mad.
Learn how to behave before you can shave.
For habits are formed at an early age
Be good little kids or sit in a cage (metaphorically speaking)
Remember the old days when parent trumped child Stay in control, don’t act spoiled and wild.
Cut us some slack, we have your back. Stop acting so cool and talking smack.
One day You’ll be raising your children too and thinking “What on earth should I do?”
Why am I sober?
I’d rather be plowed.
Is drinking at noon really not allowed?
Thats no fun for you and no fun for me Don’t force us to play some damn referee.
Just dont be a Pusi, work hard and be kind Or when we get old we might loose our mind
Then the tables will turn as we age and throw fits And you’ll be stuck cleaning our poopy bits.
Good luck to you all both parent and kid Try enforcing strict values
As wise grandparents once did.
