The Ornament Ordeal~A True Tale

picture2

When I was four years old
and trimming our tree
I put a red ornament
in my mouth to see
if it would fit
it did

Though I tried to remove it
I couldn’t, it wouldn’t
budge lest I broke it
which I didn’t

It was Crisco’s taste
and the look on mommy’s face
that impressed me most
when she eased it out
and did not shout 

at me
no, she didn’t
