#331 – Dinosaur for Christmas

Dinosaur for Christmas
“Just what I always wanted!”

This idea has been in my head since long before I even began the Lunchbox Doodle project. I had this one about eight years ago when I wrote a poem for my nephew, Zed.

Dinosaur for Christmas

Forget the games, forget the bike –
Those other gifts can take a hike.
There’s just one present I would like:
a dinosaur for Christmas.

Some kids want toys, but I do not,
and I’m not asking for a lot;
just let me be the kid who got
a dinosaur for Christmas.

Inside my bedroom he can stay,
and we’ll be quiet when we play…
he’ll only eat one ton a day,
the dinosaur for Christmas.

I’ll find the tree with him beneath,
a-munching on our Christmas wreath…
so full of love (and full of teeth)
my dinosaur for Christmas.
