We can’t the kids blame,

Parents giving everything they ask,

In the knowledge they’ll get “IT” they bask,

All they have to do is whine or complain…


I too am a member of this extensive club,

My parents spoiled me too, if not I would them snub,

How we see when older we get, some of us weren’t,

Very friendly, very compassionate, or considerate a little cub…


Spoiled rotten to the core,

If not parents thought we’d be a bore,

Prior to Christmas parents bought out the store,

Just so we’d have what THEY never had before…

Hey Ed,

I love poems like this one.
They really make you think.
I know I was spoiled rotten.
So much I think I sometimes stink.
Not the stink that makes me sweat and smell.
But the selfish stink that can send us straight to
_ _ _ _.

Made in Dec 10th,

You are so right, Brother. Instead of sending me two fabulous Christmas gifts this year, just send one.
Reviewed by Felix Perry
you are so right, as I sit night after night listening to requests for Christmas presents I can't help but feel a little disillusioned though when child after child ask for gifts that are in the three to four hundred dollar range and I am struggling to find enough cash for my meds. lol but I do agree that we the parents are the only ones to really blame.

This is more true than we want to admit! You said what is discussed around the world by parents who gave and gave and gave.... you did a great job of putting it into words, and at the same time...admitting to your own natural instincts... :-)) lindalaw

you're so right, but how can parents change when the childrens peers are getting all they want. It's a dilemma! however it could change if people truly celebrated Christmas for what it means and that is no small task... Rufuz,Read my poem and see what Chrismas is;-)
Woof Woof!

A very open and honest write: and the less we have, the more we want ... sigh.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
