Holiday traditions are a thing of joy,
Family, friends and love give me the jollies.
However this Christmas leaves me a bit sad,
For I have no homemade tamales!
I’m in my recliner,
With a cat on my lap.
Now is the time,
For a Pre-Christmas nap.
I was having a Merry Christmas,
Singing all the carols I know.
Until my rotten brother had me
Listen to “Strawberry Snow!”
She kneads me like a lump of dough,
To halt her is quite the silly faux pas.
For ne’er would I ever wish to experience
A Christmas without Sammy’s claws…
My Birthday is on Christmas,
That’s quite a double-whammy!
But I don’t need any fancy gifts,
Just want to snuggle with my Sammy.
Christmas is still fairly far away,
Yet Sam and I are getting our jollies.
Even as Thanksgiving Dinner looms,
We are eating homemade tamales!
My sister sent my kitten two catnip toys.
And Sammy came charging like a tamarao.
Her eyes were wide, her whiskers twitching,
Meaning “I need those, give them to me now!”
My birthday is on Christmas,
Which certainly gives one pause.
Don’t know who delivered me,
The stork or Santa Claus!
