How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Everyone down in Woodinville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, roaming the 12600 block of NE 166th Court, did not.

The Grinch hated Christmas - the whole Christmas season. Now, please don’t ask why; no one quite knows the reason.

He spied a car in the drive and schemed a heist of its contents —“It’s all mine!” he sneered and started filling his pockets.

An IPOD, a GPS, and that wasn’t all; Every last Christmas present in there was part of his haul.

How could he do this, during this season of light? It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.

But I think that the most likely reason of all ...  may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

The Grinch moved on to the 14600 block of NE 180th Place, taking watches and jewelry, he was setting a pace.

A computer he saw, so he took that, too, but that wasn’t all he had planned to do.

On to the 19400 block of 144th Avenue NE he proceeded, breaking the front door of the business to see what else he needed.

He stole a cash drawer with loose pieces of change, but another target was sought that was still within range.

A wallet was stolen from a sweet young lass—right out of her backpack, sometime during class.

That mean old Grinch — He still wasn’t through.  He was about to make another Woodinivllian blue.

Before his villainous plan could unravel, off to the 18600 block of 142nd Avenue NE he would travel.

With bolt cutters, into the work trailer he broke.  After stealing the tools, he once again spoke:

“No one can catch me —I’m quick as a flash.  If I could, I’d steal the last can of Woodinvillian hash.”

The 12400 block of NE Woodinville Drive, was the final spot for his thievery to thrive.

A purse and other items were taken from there, leaving the victim to suffer unneeded despair.

“You’re a foul one, Mr. Grinch / You’re a nasty, wasty skunk / Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk / Mr. Gri-inch / The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote: Stink, stank, stunk!”
