A Comedy with a twist of rhyme

Remember little Cindy-Lou Who who was not more than two.
What became of that tot, after that Grinch and what-not?
Come join us for this grown-up Who's holiday fete!
Leave your kids at home (that's the safest bet.)
And try to catch up with Cindy-Lou Who's life,
She's seen some things due to her own grinch-y strife.
But nothing can dampen the holiday cheer:
Not vodka, not Rudolph, not even flat beer.
With a song in her heart, and a pipe full of weed
She'll celebrate trailer park living at need
Her wisdom dispensed with a shot and a leer.
For this is a holiday tale of such vision...
With smoking and drinking and gossip ...
...and prison.
