Damn that Santa guy,

Again he stopped by,

Dropping out of the sky,

Left me a sack of coal,

Just cause sometimes, 

I get a little out of control…


My face red,

I wet my bed,

Tears flowing out of my head,

Screams so loud I can be heard by the dead…

 

I only do this when I don’t get my way,

Which seems to be more and more of late,

They put me in my room with a baby gate,

Wonder if they will let me out this time by May,

You don’t suppose Santa will make this my lifelong fate…?

You need to get your boat back, Ed...but then if you don't have both oars in the water...Could it be mid-life crisis? Go out and get a Cuban cigar and read the boat classifieds. Rufuz, fetch the slippers. If you can't afford it, go out and sell flowers on the streetcorner! Hustle fast, spring is coming in and the water is calling.

Hey do you know what coal is worth in the cooler climates? :-)
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
Bitch. Bitch. Bitch. LOL It is the American way. Do something with all that coal, like . . . er . . . grind it all up and sniff it up yer nose, know-whot-I-mean?

I knew you'd keep wetting that bed, little brother - and screaming at the top of your lungs. That's why I ran away from home at such an early age!

PS I'm sure you can use that coal for something.
