The Missing Stocking

Someone's stolen a sister's Christmas stocking!
The Missing Stocking

I’m tiptoe-tapping down the stairs

Upon this Christmas morn,

I like to check that Santa’s been

Before the rising dawn.

I sneak and peak around the tree

No, something’s not quite right.

My stocking’s vanished, where’s it gone?

I stuck it up last night…

With skill I scan the fireplace

And what do I detect?

Small finger prints amidst the dust

My brother, I suspect!

I softly creep into his room

He’s snoring with a smile.

I scan the scene for hidden clues

Search through his laundry pile –

Some oranges come rolling out

I scavenge like a fox.

And spy our stockings hidden in

His mound of smelly socks.

That naughty, greedy, cheeky thief!

I snatch my stocking back

And stuff his full with lumps of coal

My sweet- revenge attack!
