WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS?


A poem sent to Dear Abby from a couple who have too much stuff.


So many of you asked us (since Yuletide's drawing near)

"What do you want for Christmas? What can we give you this year?

If we say, "We want nothing!" you buy something anyway,

So here's a list of what we'd like; believe now what we say:


Pajamas for a little child, food to feed the poor.

Blankets for a shelter, and we ask a little bit more--

Perform good deeds and let us know, or volunteer your time.

These last are worth a fortune, and they needn't cost a dime.


We have to many things now, vases, candles, tapes and clocks.

We have our fill of garments, ties, underwear and socks.

Candy is too fattening, crossword books we've more than 20.

We don't need trays or plates or cups, and knickknacks we have plenty.


We've no walls to hang more pictures; we have books we've not yet read;

So please take what you'd spend on us and help the poor instead!

Just send a Christmas card to us and tell us what you've done;

We'll open them on Christmas Eve, and read them one by one.


It won't cost as much for postage as a package sent would do,

You'll need no wrapping paper, ribbons, ink or glue.

And we'll thank God you listened to what we had to say,

So we could be the instruments to help someone this way.
