I have eaten
that were on
you had probably
they were delicious
and so warm
I have read
that was by
you had thoughtfully
it was delightful
and so warm.
I have burned
that you left
would have proven that
it was glorious
and so warm

It’s the perfect crime. Convince them all that a cookie-less Santa didn’t leave any presents.
