Left the category becuase it can be.
I don't normally show first drafts, but thought with this one someone could give me the gift of insight.
That's help to you idiots, not rewriting the whole poem; write your own! Merry Xmas!


So! Who was nice this year?
And who was nasty?
Who deserves a gift?

Which one of those
Mind numbing, grumbling
Creepy, sleepy
Boring, snoring
Incessantly sweet
And drool on their sheet,
Scalawags; ballawags
Cats are people meowags.
Dogawags; horseawags
Sometimes even snakeawags

Books and talk
And Wine and pork
And turkey to the surfeit.
Beer and rum
And here it come
A raisin loaded cake.
In brandy drenched
And there, entrenched
Our dear old uncle Jake.
Thereís people that you meet each year
And some donít know at all.
And song. you really hate to hear
And give a gift to all.

For if you donít
Or if you wonít
I know a man whoís shift
Starts with the question
Decides who gets the gift.
