Being a Christmas Grinch is really hard work
I cross my arms with a self-satisfied smirk
“Bah, humbug, tosh and Fiddle-de-dee
I don’t do Christmas or people or need a fir tree”
As the days creep on I see their intent
They are all going mad with acute merriment
Cards through my door and presents too
Phone calls and messages to say I love you
I stoically stayed a Grinch for a while
What’s this in the mirror, could that be a smile?

Love the poem Meeooow! You're good at this poetry lark!

A few years ago I nearly became a Grinch but like you I couldn't let it happen. You have to fight those feelings for all you're worth (being Grinch-like is very ageing you know wink.png ). So come on, get the Christmas stockings on ...or at least the silly sweater ... alarm the relatives and enjoy yourself because the alternative is a lot worse! :woohoo:

I like that poem ... it’s hard to resist the good spirit of Christmas ... especially for a poet in elf’s clothing! smile.png xx

Yes, as much as ignore the insistent knocking on the door of goodwill, it will eventually have to be opened to let it all in.
Thank you for liking my silly poem.

As you see, I am volunteering to be one of Santa's Elves. The Christmas spirit seems
to have a strange effect on even the most die-hard Grinches.
Thank you for liking the poem.
