Five Stories – 1 – Summer Reindeer

The other toys think I’m insane
But I think I’m just bolder;
They want to stay home in their box
Until it gets much colder

But I take chances – here I am!
And no Bill of Attainder
Can keep me boxed up anymore
I am a summer reindeer

I stowed away in a beach bag
With flip-flops and some lotion;
I cannot say I care that much
For all this gull commotion

But I here I am beside the sea,
No Christmas toy has been here;
So score one for the little guy:
The fearless
