How I love that Christmas cardboard
bearing gifts for our lab and hound,
for family and friends adored,
shipped UPS and FedEx Ground.
Cardboard boxes fill the kitchen,
tucked in ev’ry nook and cranny.
Are there books or clothes bewitchin’?
Fleecy pants to warm the fanny?
How I love a Christmas teaser,
but I cannot reach the freezer!
