Ël Pinché by Guadalupe Gonzales
Spanish mythical counterpart to the grinch, maybe?
(To complete the poem, four (not so mythical) rhyming words need to be inserted where ........... (dots) appear.
The room was all laden with gifts for us three, in holiday wrappings underneath the big tree
From my sis to my auntie two golden ear rings, and a gem clustered brooch once worn by a queen
From auntie to sis two priceless heirlooms, passed on by ancestors who rest in their tombs
The gifts that I see they only get better, now here's one for me, an old wrinkled sweater
But where is the gift, it's still out of sight, as soon as I see it I'll jump with delight
They said they agreed, and my heart is now set a fire-engine red, 1960's corvette
I've just found a box, I'm expectantly pleased, just the right size and shape for a set of car keys

To sis I'll now give a cracked half filled jar, of cheap beauty creme and a smelly soap bar
To auntie some trinkets of metal that rust, and an old stinky hankie all dirty with dust.
But before I am done they'll not soon forget, that their days during christmas, they'll live to regret
So before you decide your pennies to pinch, don't forget of Ël Pinché the mexican grinch
