Gourd trees are amazing it would happen to be,
their seeds could be used for all sorts of things!
They tasted quite sweet and were a wonderful treat,
and the skin could be used to cover your feet!
The Gorbels used the seeds to make all their tools,
and discovered a way to use them for fuel!
But they took and they took 'till they were really quite rare,
but they didn't notice and did not seem to care.
But one Gorbel noticed and became very upset,
he found only three gourd trees and began to fret,
He constructed a towering Tengorashelop,
it was an awesome device with no studs on top!
He tended the tree's with big robot hands,
and even built himself a big watering can!
Then one day a tree started to seed,
The Tree Tender had insured the future indeed!
Fourth Wall: For those not familiar with the good Doctor, he was a a pretty big environmentalist. So I decided to do an MOC that focused on that aspect. Plus I could never resist the challenge to build a Dr. Seuss inspired Mech! Again, sorry for the 'sheety' background. Go Monkeys!

There will be victors and vanquished. There will be spoils. There will be war.
Read, head, and gods speed. Attack!
When I saw in this category you built a mech, the first thing I said to myself "what the heck?" You pulled this off nicely we all can agree, your score will be much higher than three. You pulled at the heartstrings and made us all think. Then you gave him a watercan so the plants could drink. Build by itself was a four no surprise, but adding a great story brought it up to a 5! ~ Chris.
