 The Gift  (E)
Writer's Cramp Entry 12-20-2016
#2106029 by Chris Breva AKA Marvin Schrebe


Now I've wrapped each precious gift
I'm very satisfied with myself now
Then I notice I left one major rift
There's a lone gift not tagged somehow.

Did I make a major mistake today
What kind of gifts will each one now receive
Did I just give Kim's gift to Sally May
Or did I give Bob's sweater away to Steve?

I have no time to wrap them again now
I just have to leave it all up to chance
I can only swear on oath and a solemn vow
I did not mean to give that doll to Lance!

Sometimes things can turn into quite a mess
You make a mistake then there's no redress!
