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!
Now don’t get all grumpy,
And claim that I’m mean,
But I have my decorations up
For Christmas 2018.
Christmas in Los Angeles,
Has me sweating like a yeti.
Not like they do in Old Tibet,
But more like in the Serengeti.
