Twelve Forgettable Christmas Gifts

Imagining a zany list of gift ideas for this year

Let’s make Christmas fun again as it comes near 

Sitting here tonight in Ohio’s Buckeye land

Not too sure about Santa’s helping hand

Hoping that special gifts will await under the tree

Thinking that “some” might be pleasing for thee

A self-stirring coffee mug looks quite neat

Stirring my cup o’ Joe will be an easy feat

Christmas tea bags offer a new twist

Leaving my cup filled with a tasty mist

Is that Darth Vader guarding the door?

Inflating him brings fear and much more

I’m not really into checking Twitter most of the time

Looking at a set of framed tweets may be just fine

My stocking may be filled with a hockey stick snow brush

Cheering for my beloved Blue Jackets on the ice is a must

Someone spies a cassette tape collection of familiar songs

Wondering where to find a cassette player that is long gone

Golf ball finder glasses may just do the trick

Searching for my errant shot in rough so thick

My daughter tempts me with chocolate Brussel sprouts

Wishing for “just” the sweet chocolate, leaves no doubt

A senior moments memory workout DVD may be slick

Keeping my brain’s recall functioning makes a great gift

Coffee drinking in the morning, wine sipping late at night

Using a “Flip Over” glass makes switching work just right

Last of all, needing to conceal my dounut so sweet

Receiving a dounut mug may hide it—isn’t this neat!

Warming myself in front of a blazing fire tonight

Hoping that another lump of coal will not be in sight
