Stars upon thars

All those little stars* which have miraculously reappeared on the UAE Community blogroll remind me of one of my favourite Dr Seuss stories, The Sneetches.

Now the Star-Belly Sneetches had bellies with stars.
The Plain-Belly Sneetches had none upon thars.
Those stars weren’t so big. They were really so small
You might think such a thing wouldn’t matter at all.
But, because they had stars, all the Star-Belly Sneetches
Would brag, “We’re the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches.”

It’s a wonderfully appropriate story for Dubai, all about the folly of discrimination, snobbishness and pursuit of fashion.

Later . . . the stars have gone again! Must be a cloudy night :(
