Merry Christmas From America

Mr. Bones dresses up
like Santa,
he wraps up presents

in the garage.
He wraps up Palestine,
he wraps up Israel,

he wraps up Iraq,
he wraps up
all the troubled spots on

on the planet.
He gets in his sleigh
and delivers them

to all the poor kids
on earth.
"What the hell

are you doing!" screams Henry.
"I’m pretending to be
the United States of America,

ho, ho, ho,
and a very Merry Christmas
from America!" snickers Mr. Bones.
