A Christmas to Remember

The home-made cookies

He’d consumed

So eagerly before

Now lay in chunky disarray

Beside him on the floor.


His tongue was clenched

Between his teeth,

His beard was streaked

With red;

Yes, it was very obvious

That Santa Claus was dead.


The note upon

The table read:

To Santa and his elves,

We hope you like

The cookies

Me and Timmy

Made ourselves.
