For The Moms Who Make Christmas

i am 
the partridge in the pear tree

i am
the ho ho ho
the fa-la-la
the jingle all the way

i am
the roast beast
(or better yet, tofurky)
the stuffing
the cranberries
the green bean casserole
the cookies
the pies
the egg nog
the figgy...
...pudding

sometimes
i am
the grinch

but mostly 
i am
the mistletoe
the stockings hung by the chimney with care
the tree full of lights
the brightly wrapped gifts
the tinsel

i am
the silent night

i am
peace on earth

i am
the mom

i make the magic

and when all this is over
i am
taking a spa day

because
i am 
in fact
the sugar plum fairy

and
i am
exhausted
