Please send me sixteen shrunken heads
And forty-four nails for my bed
An atom bomb, some toxic waste
Gorilla brains with salt to taste
A hunchback who will do my bidding
Needle and thread (but not for knitting
They’re to keep my head attached
So I won’t wake to find it snatched!)
A werewolf to howl at the moon
A haunted flute or cursed bassoon
An iron maiden, extra ferrous
A silly hat to kid-embarrass
And for my bridge an ugly troll
Or else you could just give me coal!
I wouldn’t care, I’m not that haughty
I promise I’ve been extra naughty
Goodness and I never commingle
I swear to it, Mr. Kringle.
My list has reached its denouement, sir.
