Microstories: Not The Best Gift

I happily open
the gilded lid.
To my dismay
I find

Drummers, Pipers, and Lords,
Ladies and Maids,

Swans, Geese, and Golden Rings,
Calling Birds,  French Hens, Turtle Doves,

and a Partridge, all deceased. 

Someone forgot to put holes in the box.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
