He keeps coming back: Mr. Grinch


Its that time of the year again.

Yes, its the season I love the most of all each and every year. Its the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ by way of a special date of memorial. As with everything else in the world, commercialism has indeed taken a hold of festivities and with it a new symbol. The symbol I’m, sharing with you is non-other than Mr. Grinch.

Last year I wrote a poem about him and how he comes to ‘mess with’ my happy season.

Catching Mr. Grinch

That Grinch tried to steal my Christmas,

Last year he did not win

My sister came to visit

And kicked him in the shin

He must really like the torture, of trying his disguise on me

He thought I would not but yes I did

Finally he saw my Christmas tree


Mr. Grinch by now I hoped you’d see this worthy adversary

Will not depart, nor change her heart

Each season I will be merry

Your spoils of unhappiness must be really low

For this next attempt you make

Forget finance

Forget romance

But never my Christmas spirit you’ll take


Grinchy boy maybe I was feeling sorry

And gave you the ‘come hither‘ eye

Sorry I need to tell you, that’s just a part of my Christmas disguise

Wrapped in all my troubles

And bills piled so high

I can see why you were in your glee

My door is never open to you  – sour grapes

That’s a fools thought if you felt happy


Grinch dearie  please don’t look my way

My smiles are turned on very brightly

The stars in the sky

Can’t tell the days which go by

You are a nightmare that will make me feel sorry


Scroogy Grinch, you are so adorable

The way you make me remember all I do not have

You can fill a moment with sorrow

Casting shadows which make me sad

But I put up my Christmas tree today

Just for you to see

Whatever you do, will only hurt you

This Christmas it’s not about me!


I will be spreading joy

 Making everyone laugh

Singing carols, telling stories

No one will be sad

I’m on a mission to spread happiness

Those great feelings of good cheer

And I’ll even share a wish for you this Christmas

That you don’t come back next year! 

I do hope this time of the year brings everyone much joy and family time! Thanks for reading, sharing, and expressing your joy for the season and life!
