It slithered from the toilet

and across the bathroom floor

It slithered down the hallway

and then underneath my door

It slithered into my bedroom

and right past my teddy bear

It slithered onto the blanket

and it caught me unaware

It slithered and it woke me

as I laid there in my bed

 It slithered onto my pillow

then it kissed me on the head

I wondered what it could be

that slithered over my face

I hoped that it would slither off

to someone else’s place

It slithered up my nostril

and then out of my left ear

It wished me Merry Christmas

and a Slithery New Year!
