The Shut-in Stand-Up

A comedic look at modern life from the perspective of a traumatized but standing up shut-in.

Didn’t want Mittens

on September 9, 2012

a fave poem from my childhood, not wanting mittens was my holiday mantra.

I wanted a rifle for Christmas,
I wanted a bat and a ball,
I wanted some skates and a bicycle,
But, I didn’t want mittens at all.

I wanted a whistle
And I wanted a kite,
I wanted a pocketknife
That shut up tight.
I wanted some boots
And I wanted a kite,
But I didn’t want mittens
one little bit.

I told them I didn’t like mittens,
I told them as plain as plain.
I told them I didn’t WANT mittens,
And they’ve given me mittens again!
