This is probably a true story...

That Christmas Mouse

 


I was the Mouse in the house that Christmas
When reindeer landed on the roof
I didn't speak up when I should have
But I was there - and here's the proof

I was there when Santa came down the chimney
I was there when he yelled Ho-Ho-Ho
I saw his sooty outfit
I saw the milk and cookies go

I saw him go back up the chimney
He took off like the morning breeze
And after he was out of sight
I wondered - HEY - Where's my Christmas cheese?

Thank you, Mr. C.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
