Who needs to shop?

The Present

On a cold white Christmas long ago
A friend gave me a present.
Ooh and Ahh I told him then,
"How kind, how sweet, how pleasant."

At once I started on my scheme
To pass the present on.
I had no use for this old junk
And it didn't take me long.

So soon I found my lucky chance
And gave it to a friend.
I thought I'd seen the last of it,
And that had been the end.

But little did I know it then
My friend would follow suit
And soon the gift was sent again
Along its merry route.

Round and round the present went
Passed along the chain,
Of family, friends, acquaintances
And back to me again!
