Happy, Happy

By Elvira

Santa Clause,
coming in a
‘copter!
Candy, oranges, —
he knows our names!

Dad worked hard,

Finding those ugly planes —
but every Christmas:   noise
other kids
yummy things.
Then a trip to Grandma’s.
tamales
candies
cousins
those were the days
Now,
gone in the haze
of meds.
