A LIST FOR SANTA
by J. Neil Schulman
Now that I'm all grown up
I'm not supposed to believe in you
But Santa there are things I want
Not many, just a few.
It isn't much I ask this year
I don't want to be a pest
But if you could just help me out
I sure could use the rest.
Could Santa do my laundry?
Could Santa fix my car?
Could Santa pay my Visa bill
If I wish upon a star?
I do not need some brand new shoes
Or a Rolex or a Rolls.
I'm happy with the shoes I've got
if you'd kindly fill the holes.
I don't mean to sound pathetic
I'm capable of greed
But after wishing for the world
I've learned a simpler creed.
The more I get the more I want
I'm never satisfied
So if I ask for little
It's easily gratified.
So Santa, fix my hard drive?
Please Santa scratch my back.
Cause, Santa, when all's said and done
There's darn little that I lack.
So have a Merry Christmas, friends,
And drink a cup of cheer,
And have a healthy, safe and lovely
Happy Brand New Year!
