The christmas lesson — t r e f o l o g y

I’ll never forget the

Christmas our parents

told us that because

it had been a hard year,

financially,

we could only ask for

one present a-piece

***

So, that Christmas

all that I asked for were

scarlet ribbons.

***

Pretty scarlet ribbons for my hair.

***

And come

Christmas morning,

I got them, too.

And they were

as beautiful as you

may imagine.

***

My sister got a

new computer, though,

and suddenly,

I realized

what I fool I had been.

***

Stupid ribbons.
