Said the doll to the orange:  “It’s a bit of a shock

To have been on a sleigh and then put in a sock.”

    Said the orange: “You’re lucky.  Think how I feel.

    You’ll be loved by a child whilst I'll just be peel.”


From up on the tree came a very loud squeal.

Said the poor little fairy: 'Well think how I feel.

    'They’ve put me up here and I’m frightened of heights -

      And it's terribly hot near to these little lights.


From a brightly wrapped box a teddy bear said:

'Oh stop all your grumbling!  Be happy instead.

    'Tomorrow is Christmas! There’ll be laughter and play -

    And nobody grumbles upon Christmas Day!'


                                                                      (Or do they?)
