An old Holiday poem:

No need for cee/pee, this one was written eons ago for my RT poets' group.

Wesley, The Senile
(A limerick in corrupt form)

There was an old elf,
beside himself
dismissed from Santa's shop.
He'd lost his facilities,
therefore his ability
to properly package
gumdrops.

Not a cp, but just so you know: this made me smile. It also made me wonder what the improper packaging of gumdrops is... I mean, was the bag inside out? Or was he cramming them into candy cane wrappers? Was he doing a poor job of sealing them so that all that sugar from the bottom of the bag was falling out and making everything sticky? :)

That's it -- he was a shoddy sealer.

I'll bet that you left out the quotation marks around "properly". When the elf lost some of his dexterity, concentration, and even some of

I love when you "let loose" - but, Roberta, I gotta ask: just how much coffee have you had this morning?!!

I've only had one coffee so far today, and drank it while I wrote the post. I've had several cups of tea.

After reading your poem,and subsequent posts, all I can do is belly laugh now and say "I love y'all!"
Embrace change.
