1489 – The Worst Gift

The Worst Gift
FACT: it was actually a box full of burps.

The Worst Gift

I don’t mean to seem unpleasant,
but you can’t call this a present.
Disappointment? I can’t hide it:
It’s a box with ZILCH inside it.

When I opened your illusion,
you just laughed at my confusion.
I can barely even stand it
when I think how long you planned it.

I don’t want to sound ungrateful,
but this trick you played was hateful!
What you did was really rotten!
I’d prefer that you’d forgotten!

You may think you’re oh-so-clever,
but I won’t forgive you, EVER.
And don’t think I won’t remember
that YOUR birthday’s next September…
