I confess, at first I was intimidated by this form-- too many SAT words! But when I took a closer look and saw how much fun others were having, I decided to pull up my boot straps and give it a try. Little did I know, my boots would be the shiny black kind worn by a kindhearted man with a white beard, red fur-lined suit, and a special fondness for children and snack food! Apparently my muse has had quite enough of this Florida summer.
THE UNFORTUNATE DEMISE
OF OL’ SAINT NICK
Jolly Saint Nicholas
choked on his Ho Ho and
fell to the floor.
Elves know that Santa liked
Twinkies much more.
