4:15 am: the Grinch is awoken
Shouting he hears, but what’s being spoken?
He peers out the window, below he espies
a band of young people, through his bleary eyes.
Students out carousing all night
completed their schooling, their caps all in white.
Sauntering down the middle of Strandvejen
(for those not local: a path death-defying!).
A cap goes a-flying, its owner oblivious
lying on pavement, it won’t remain niveous.
The Grinch makes a smirk; “Serves you right”, he believes
“One reaps what one sows, you sleep-stealing thieves!”
(Yet–in truth, he’s not certain a cap did go missing
but allow him some licence for this little dissing).
