Christmas Socks, a poem written by BIGnick.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the presents I ever got
Even those red and green, ugly Christmas socks
I remember games of Frisbee down at the sandlot
And splashing in the puddles were my ugly Christmas socks
My toy t-Rex wore them when I was bored
That little argyle reptile made my heart soar
The older I got the more precious they became
Despite all the holes I loved them all the same
From warm, weathered hands were sown the two
It was then that I realized grandma works for you
So this Christmas, Santa, I offer you a trade
I’ll give you my socks to have grandma for one more day
Without her they’re just patches of crazy colored cloth
Instead of my very own, my very favorite ugly Christmas socks
