The modern-day notion
of international post,
is one that most certainly
irks me more than most,
as I sent away
a parcel to the North Pole,
on the 8th of December
but where did it go?

In the time in between
that day and now,
its recipient has already
outdone me, somehow,
and ventured to send
his own package down,
and unbelievably
guess who its already found?

The US Postal Service
is a wonder in itself,
the carriers must be busy
feeling sorry for themselves,
And, all I want to hear now
is how my mail reached him well,
before I lose my patience
and go quite “Postal”, myself.
