Not Bad To The Bone

That robber baron, Grinch-
he deserves not an inch
of mercy from Whoville residents;
who elected him president?

 He’s green, and mean to his assistant,
making him shlep bags, he’s resistant,
poor little guy, why, he’s scared stiff.
With his master, Grinch, he wants no tiff.

But even a Grinch is not all bad,
he saw Cindy Loo Who become quite sad.
so all those presents he had stolen,
he replaced them with a smile that emboldened
his faithful aide to dance and sing,
welcoming Christmas in with a ring!

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
