The best gift I received was a cover
In 1975 from my mother
You are thinking ‘that’s a terrible presents’
But back then we were cold, hungry peasants.
It was fluffy polyester with rayon
Or was it pink polyester and nylon?
It was labeled a ‘velvety soft mink’
Never washed it became the ‘pink stink’
I would turn myself into a taco
And feel like I’d won life’s big lotto.
