Christmas On The Cheap


When moneys tight and your luck's run hard,

When all your credit is maxed on the card.

Here is an idea or three

To make the most of cheap holiday glee.


There's Cousin Al fresh from the pen

He'll ink a homemade tat for a five or a ten.

And for a gift both fresh and dope

He can carve the Virgin Mary from a bar of soap.


For a kick try some arts and crafts,

It might be good for a couple of laughs.

I think that I'll be generous and give my neighbors, the hicks.

A Family Portrait made from Popsicle sticks.


Whether in the lean or in the fat

I hope your Christmas is all that.

It's not the cost but the thought counts more.

Even if it's from the Dollar Store.

I got cheated. None of my recently paroled kin can even draw stick figures.

My brother collects Catholic kitsch---he'd be all over a Mary carved in soap...

Actually this year on eof the gifts he got from me was a little stamp that imprints the virgin Mary's picture on toast. He collects toasters too, so as you might imagine it was a hit. :)

Travis Erwin said...

Dude, are you still alive?

Mimi said...

I see you went awal too. I hope you and AJ and the family are okay:)
