dear mr. santa claus

dear santa claus
please don't work too hard this year
we don't need toys, for little boys
all we need is cash
this isn't one of the years from the past
please just give us cash
dad wont be home, he works four jobs
he dosent live here any way.
all we need is heat, and food to eat
please don't work too hard this year
dont clean out mommy's pocket book
dont steal our meals away
please, mr. santa claus
dont work so hard this year
timmy needs shoes
and I need socks
and we need to stay away from the card board box
, mommy say's we will be living in
so please please, mr. santa claus don't work to hard this year.
i dont need a phone to call my friends on
all i need is care
so please mr. santi claus, don't work too hard this year

    A very heartfelt plea in poetic form. Sadly Christmas is mostly about money and commercialism these days. It used to be about family and celebration. Now it's all about greed. The religious aspect is not even noticed by half of the richest countries. Stay strong (Report) Reply

    A heartfelt plea indeed. Sad to say that Christmas is becoming more and more money oriented with every passing year. It's getting harder for parents every year - to the point of madness. Well written. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
