Because You All Know About Jabez Daws
BY OGDEN NASH
Once there was an antelope
Who said, "I’ll write to Santa Clope."
"You mean, my son to Santa Claus,"
His mother told the antelaus.
"I know, but Mom it never rhymes –
I’ve tried it half a dozen times!"
And so he wrote: "Dear Santa Climes,
Do you have skate for antelimes?"
"My son, see here, this will not do,"
His mother told the anteloo.
"It’s Santa Claus! Now try again."
And so he wrote: "Dear Santa Clen,
I’d like some skates, I’d like a sled. . ."
