My Clever Christmas Scheme

For there I was standing with face all aglow,
Wearing a hat that was covered with fresh mistletoe!

The girl of my dreams would finally be mine!
Sadly I gained not one peck on the cheek,
Though I stood there like that, for week after week.

I puzzled and fumed, and I scratched my poor brain,
Then one girl spoke up, her words filled with disdain.
