TWAS A POLICE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

 Several years ago Deputy Chief Scott Custer of the South Windsor Police Department wrote this  holiday poem:
 
"A woman living in South Who-ville gave the police a call,
About Grinch-like activity in her apartment house hall,
A delivery man left a parcel for a neighbor and all was pleasant,
Then she heard 2 strangers in the hallway tampering with the present,
The woman told dispatchers 2 men took the neighbors box,
These grinches stole it from the hallway, not touching doors or locks,
The men walked away she said, not knowing where they went,
But she described the grinches to police dispatch and officers were sent.
Officers listened to the description she gave,
The suspects were stopped by a detective named Dave,
The grinches said they never opened the box or saw what was inside,
The officers decided that the grinches had lied,
The cops arrested the grinches and took them jail,
They later  made bond and got out on  bail,
Early next year the grinches will go to court,- and we hold no grudge,
Their misdeeds will be retold and they'll answer to a judge.
