> How The Grinch Stole Financial Aid
> Every Who down in Who-ville
> Liked students a lot…
> But the Grinch,
> Who lived in Washington
> He did NOT!
> The Grinch hated students!
> Especially those who used drugs.
> He wanted them gone
> Stamped out like bed bugs!
> It could be that his head wasn’t screwed on quite right.
> It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
> But we think the most likely reason of all
> May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
> But whatever the reason,
> His heart or his shoes,
> He stood there on Capitol Hill, hating the Whos,
> Hating their youth and hating their fun
> Wishing them gone, every last one!
> So that mean old Grinch began to plan and plot
> (As much as his tiny brain would allot).
> How could he throw the Whos out of schools?
> How could he get Congress to pass such a rule?
> And then it came to him!
> A brilliant plan!
> Financial aid to Whos who used drugs would be banned!
> He would slip his wretched rule into a benevolent bill
> So that the other Who-lawmakers wouldn’t know until
> It had already passed…
> So that’s what he did,
> He did it sneaky and fast.
> Nine years later, the Grinch law remains on the books.
> Meanwhile, Who-prisons house more drug users than crooks.
> And the number of Whos denied money for school?
> It totals more than two hundred thousand and two.
> This particular Grinch, whose friends call him Souder,
> Comes from a long line of Grinches hungry for power.
> The Grinch War on Drugs was always doomed to lose,
> But the Grinches know its real purpose:
> A War on the Whos!
> But the Grinch didn’t count on a group of young Whos,
> Many whose friends had been hurt by this rule,
> Banding together, determined to fight back.
> Passion and determination were not what they lacked.
> But they did lack a small bit of necessary stuff,
> A thing which the Grinch had more than enough.
> At the end of each year, they need Who-cents and Who-dollars…
> So they give their best friends a little Who-holler.
