Presents And Money


The presents have been bought.

The money has been spent.

You look at what you bought,

And wonder where the money went.

The presents that you bought,

Don’t look all that expensive.

The list of those to receive them,

Isn’t all that extensive.

I hope the friends like what they receive,

Because if they don’t,

There’s nothing I can do to please,

For the things they want.

What ever happened to

 It’s the thought that counts?

So that in our bodies,

Not a lot of stress will mount.

I’m going to go back,

To that point in time,

So that between presents and money,

I won’t lose my mind.
