All I Want For Christmas


All I want for Christmas,
Is my dignity.
My dignity,
You took from me!

All I want for Christmas,
Is my dignity.
Freed from a greed,
You deceived!

'You wicked lowlife slithering leeches.'

All I want for Christmas,
Is my dignity.
My dignity,
You took from me!

All I want for Christmas,
Is my dignity.
Freed from a greed,
You deceived!

~Daddy?
Do you think that is an appropriate song for Santa?
Maybe 'Jingle Bells'?
You can do 'Jingle Bells' and I'll send 'that'
With my letter to the North Pole.
Record it over, please Daddy, please.~

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
