Naughty Is As Naughty Does

She who shall remain nameless
has made the 'naughty list'
for scores of little reasons and some
too big to resist!

Oh, she thinks that she's a darling
with the whole world at her feet--
truth be known, she's not all that
and isn't even sweet!

Instead of pink flamingos
scampering on her lawn
or toilet papering her trees
(so passe,) huge yawn.

I simply sent a letter
to the man who's dressed in red
explaining all about the bit , witc, (um) lady
and here is what I said:

Dear Santa,
Put her on your coal list, please
she's a bully and a minx,
a self-inflated kumquat
and a sly, insideous jinx!

I spoke of mayhem, dungeons, too,
of wondering why anybody choser her--
but when all was said and done,
my best friend was an oger!

Well, I was too, so she's doubly wrong,
and seems she's naughty to the core!
And, dear Santa, February's coming round
and I know that she's been plotting more!

Aside from transformational angst,
I suppose she's not too bad,
but she left us here to rot away
and that makes me very sad.

But, maybe, just coal in her stocking
and leave her gifts beneath her tree,
she was probly misinformed
about my friend and me.

(All in good fun... she says looking at her sparkly tiara)
