Dear Santa

  


Dear Santa, I don't want to set the world on fire or learn how to fly
Some places are so humid you could trim your tree with fish if you wish
The place I live is much too dry, it would seem, to do any such thing
So I tend to lean to swimming upstream with a mouth full of dust
After I import the weapons with which to arm bears and export toxic waste
My poisons inflicted on the poor, there is no way I can present myself as virtuous 

~cie~
