A Christmas Poem

I have eaten
the cookies
that were on
the mantel

and which
you had probably
left there
for Santa

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so warm

I have read
the note
that was by
the cookies

and which
you had thoughtfully
written
for Santa

Forgive me
it was delightful
so sweet
and so warm.

I have burned
the note
that you left
for Santa

and which
would have proven that
there had
been cookies

Forgive me
it was glorious
so bright
and so warm

(with apologies to William Carlos Williams)

    Love this.

    In other news, William Carlos Williams should apologize to you. He knows what he did.

    I see you have already learned the most important lesson of all: Destroy the Evidence.

    I hope you don’t think all that poetical crap is going to make up for the fact that you ATE MY COOKIES.

  5. Awful.
    I would never do anything like that.
    Psst… I don’t have any cookie stuck in my teeth, do I?!
