The Father Christmas On The Cake





For fifty weeks I've languished
Upon the cupboard shelf
Forgotten and uncared for
I've muttered to myself
But now the year is closing
And Christmas time is here
They dust me down and tell me
To show a little cheer
Between the plaster snowman
And little glassy lake
They stand me in the middle
Of some ice covered cake
And for a while there's laughter
But as the week wears on
They've cut up all the landscape
Till every scrap is gone
Then with the plaster snowman
And little lake of glass
I'm banished to the cupboard
For one more year to pass
