It’s December

it’s winter

it might snow

Let’s see a little magic

 

It’s December

it’s winter

I hope it snows

I want to hit the stage, be Houdini

and make some magic

 

It’s December

it’s winter

when it snows

I will write about it

and become  magic, word by word

 

 

Daily Post Prompt: Protest

Mrs Claus Below The Stars

 

Mrs Claus

watches  Santa Claus

fly away in his magic sleigh

 

Mrs Claus

wondered if Santa Claus

ever looked back at her

and said:

I wish I could  be you tonight

 

stranded below the stars

I wish I could be you tonight

alone looking up at the stars

 

Mrs Claus

watches Santa Claus

Sail up to the moon

wrapped in magic and dreams and hope

 

Mrs Claus

always wonders how Santa Claus

can fly to the stars

and leave her stranded below

for that wonderful night

alone.

I have asked for some strange things for Christmas- Fiji Mermaids, Body Parts in Jars, one year I even asked for one of those Mutant Alien Babies with the pointy teeth and big eyes.

Nobody laughed and more or less, I got what I asked for.

One year I got practical and I asked for a new set of Gourmet Kitchen Knives and my family said, ” No really, what do you want for real?”

” Really. I want knives.” I said.

” Like scalpels or …”

” I have those. I have those coming out of my ears. I want new knives for the kitchen.”

” Oh Anita. You’re so funny.”

The Shrunken Heads showed up that year- but I did not find a single knife- and by Santa’s Beard I needed them.

I also asked for a set of kitchen knives.
