Every Who down in Whoville liked The Prosperos a lot.
But the Grinch who lived north of Whoville did not.
The Grinch thought the Truth, to him, was uncouth.
So he plotted and planned and structured a ruse.
He’d sponsor a dean of the school,
No one would know.
No Who’d be the wiser.
And for many years,
he was a well-hidden miser.
But finally one day
the Grinch showed his face.
And the dean gave up power
and the Grinch fell to grace.
Instead of clinging to a power elusive.
The Grinch gave it up and became a reclusive.
But all the Whos in Whoville now knew
that the Grinch was a Who man who valued the True.
And the Whos in Whoville
governed themselves well.
And the dean and the Grinch
became Whos as well.
And Whoever reads this,
Whoever might be.
Knows that the Whos in Whoville
are finally free.
