The Shadow that Stole Bionicle - A Rhyming Story-Thing

So I guess people liked my Doctor Seuss parody,
So here am again with another tale.
Except this one was written completely by me,
And not half-stolen (with no originality),
So I hope you enjoy! And also IMPALE


There once was a group that created Lego sets,
Who were working on Bionicle toys for 2015.
It may seem like a difficult task, and yet,
They were able to finish without breaking a sweat,
But they soon faced a threat that had not been foreseen.

As they locked up the place where they had worked,
A shadow crept into the room unseen.
It checked around, then giving a jerk,
It reared its ugly face and gave a frightening smirk,
And then headed towards the plastic figurines.

As it approached the table upon which they sat,
It paused for a minute to observe the scene.
Then moving stealthily, just as a cat,
It grabbed the toys in two seconds flat,
Then jumped out the window, seemingly routine.

The shadow ran over to a vehicle grand,
A beautifully long and sleek limousine.
It had four black tires upon which to stand,
And plenty of gas to travel across the land,
A truly masterful, wonderful machine.

As the shadow lept in, the driver turned round,
And asked, "Hey! Aren't you that thief who is only nineteen?"
The shadow replied, "Yes, that's a name to which I am bound,"
"But I have another name of which rumors abound,"
"I'm also known as @MaximumWarp, and I'm only f****** fifteen."
