Socks And Rhymes: Coping When Trapped With An Awful Grinch

Santas on snowmen and puppy dog glances
Jim Carrey’s Grinch making me pray for eye lances
Fuming that Die Hard is good but not right
These are the thoughts that I’m having tonight.

These Santas are older than each pair this year
For nigh 30 years they’ve been bringing me cheer
Bought them from Kmart, a poor working lad
Before that damn store got depressingly sad

These socks still remind me of wonderful times
Holiday cheer with good friends in our primes
I’ll never forget all the memories they bring
That’s why they’re some of my favorite things
