Dear Santa

Dear Santa, I'd love a new brain 'cos mine's broke, Perhaps a new face - mine's a joke, But a smile and a kiss Would really be bliss, From a handsome hunky young bloke. Now Santa, you know I'm no prude, And if you can't find me that dude, Perhaps you'd stand-in, Pamper my whim? To refuse would simply be rude! Original poem by Jabo.

OH my oh my you want a new hunk! I am sure it is a myth and debunked. You have your nice guy, I am sure he will buy You the biggest , stunning diamond in the sky! Blimey Janet I know it is not up to your high standards but I guess you get my drift.

@garymarsh6 Lol - thanks for responding in rhyme Gary, and yes I get your drift. Perhaps I'd better show this to my old man - perhaps he'll take the hint

How cute is this? Love it. You are lucky you need only a new brain and face, I need the entire package, from head to toe.

@pgntwo Lol - a good try, though the rhymes are a bit tortured! Anyway I don't think he'd manage a hunky dude for me in his sack, so I'll have to be waiting with a bit of mistletoe!

Santa whispered into my ear, Your very wish he did hear, If he cannot find the young hunk you desire, He would love nothing more than to light your fire, Mrs. Clause said she will share this one time, But she wants him back so keep that in mind! Your much better at this than I am. Lol. =) I tried though!

If your broken brain can produce such endearing poems wonder what will happen after Santa gives you a new brain. (lol) And about that kiss from a young bloke you know these young men simply like oldies and so it will not be difficult for Santa to provide you with one

Were you inspired by the song 'I saw mother kissing Santa Claus'? A kiss would be fine, I will join you in line Some mistletoe held in my hand, Just to help to entice Someone handsome and nice The gesture would be rather grand.

@jaboUK There are times when I find myself searching for words and that really scares me. I need to try and find some of those brain teasers online. It seems like since I no longer work, my brain doesn't work as hard as it used to.
