Jim: A Hallmark Moment

“This Christmas,
May the presence of kin
Bring you tons of good cheer
And presents of sin
With a lot of cold beer.”

Young Murray looked up from the greeting card and expectantly at his boss.

“Hmmm,” said Snyder. “It’s not really… er… what’s the word?”

“Festive?” offered Murray.

Snyder pondered. “No. The word I’m looking for is ‘good’. It’s not really any good, Murray.”

“That’s not fair,” Murray whined. “Every Christmas poem I can think of has already been written.”

“This is a hard business,” scowled Snyder. “Give me three original poems, though, and I’ll promote you to Get-Well-Soons.”
