Making Memories

For weeks the list floats in my head

But it's fuzzy and not easily read

The checkmarks won't stick

The clock does its tick

And that book, was it one he just read?


Do they have the same number of things?

Accidental sib gift-slighting stings

A ball of lights haunts me

It isn't the best tree

The manger is missing a king!


Oh cookies, please please bake yourself

This Santa's feeling more like an elf

Here, you wear the hat

And the pillow for fat

The suit with the fake ermine pelt


A deep breath and now i feel better

A movie, a beer and a sweater

The day it will come

What's done is what's done

This giver's done being a fretter
