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!
