While watching the baseball game, I saw a promotion where you get a free taco if someone steals a base. What can you think of that’s free? We’re freeing up our muse and writing a “free” poem. It won’t cost you a thing.
CANDY CANES ARE FREE You stand in line you’re looking fine you haven’t had the chance to whine. You can’t decide, you want to hide you’re shaking like a leaf inside. You see me there, you start to stare, but this is more than you can bear. Those canes of candy they look dandy, but you don’t have a nickel handy. But soon there’s glee for you can see I’m giving them away for free. You stop and pause, but you come because it’s me and I am Santa Claus. (C) Walter J Wojtanik - 2021 ***
