If the colors doesn’t fit your suit
or if you think that silk is way too cute,
you may use it, tying mother to the stake
or turn it to a sleeping-bag for snakes,
you may shred it or spin it into yarn,
but I hope you like it Pa, or I’ll be darned
I host MTB dVerse, and I follow an old tradition in Sweden to write rhymes for gifts. If you hadn’t guessed it this is for a tie I might have given to my father. This is not great poetry, just fum.

How clever and the prompt is just perfect for the holiday as well. I thought it was more sinister than a tie, smiles.
Ha… yes it’s fund to mislead the recipient a bit… maybe you will have a new tradition.
LoL! I wish my gifts came with such double entendre rhymes.
Ha… I have not written any in ages…
Me neither actually…
This is fun, Björn! I’d be worried about him typing mother to the stake with a silk tie, though.
Maybe Ma and Pa just want’s to have a bit of fun. 🙂
wow hadn’t thought of all these uses for a silk tie … might have to buy one 🙂
They have so many uses it’s amazing.
like the idea of a sleeping bag for snakes … might put one out and see if they go for it 🙂
Be careful… it might actually work
lol grew up with them Bjorn, kept them as pets but traded one in for silkworms which breed quicker … altho we never spun any ties 🙂
I knew it was a tie, immediately.You’ve got me in that frame of mind. Wonderful prompt. I wrote 4 quatrains, but could have written a dozen; too much fun.
Maybe you will start a new tradition for the gifts… you should write an additional one for the President … 🙂
Ties are certainly multi-purpose gifts Björn… 🙂
Nice description: “a sleeping-bag for snakes”. It would make me want to check those sleeping bags twice.
haha – This made me smile – I would love to receive rhyming gift tags.
You made the gift much more interesting than an ordinary tie!
As you’ve rightly mentioned it usually is tinged with humor. Like it that way!
A lovely tradition and a perfect prompt, Björn! And my dark inner being loves your poem. God Jul!
Love your words to accompany the gift!
😊is it a lasso
MERRY CHRISTMAS BJÖRN
Such a sweet poem!
Receiver will surely love your gift!!!
Happy New Year in advance 🙂
