District Grinch


Every TEAHCER down in Whoville Liked TEACHING a lot… 

But the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville, Did NOT! 

The Grinch scorned TEACHERS! The whole TEACHING season! 



Now, please don’t ask why. I don’t quite know the reason. 

It could be my head wasn’t screwed on just right. 

It could be, perhaps, that my shoes were too tight. 

But I think that the most likely reason of all, 

May have been that my heart was two sizes too small. 

Whatever the reason, my heart or my shoes, 

I stood there AT THE MEETING, hating the Whos, 

Staring down from my OFFICE with a sour, Grinchy frown, 

At the warm lighted windows below in their town. 

For I knew every Who down in Whoville beneath, 

Was busy now, PLANNING  a rally and  feast.

“And they’re wearing their t-shirts!” I snarled with a sneer, 

“HONOR TEACHERS” was written in letters quite clear.

Then I growled, with my Grinch stomach nervously churning”

I MUST find some way to stop Teachers from earning!” 

I’ll distribute the money into every cranny and nook.

I’ll put some here and there and under a book.

“It doesn’t have to be fair” I said with no soula.

I won’t even give them their just and right COLA!
