Late for Festivus, early for Christmas

No airing of grievances,
No pinning tonight,
Just remembering a toy
That I sent into flight.

It appeared in a Wishbook
From Sears, doncha know
And it got on the list
To the man from the snow

The kid must have been nice
Or I guess he slid by
Cause that glider showed up
And it took to the sky*!

(*and subsequently landed on rooftops, in trees, and over schoolyard fences into various back yards)

Very cool. I do not recall this toy. Must have been considered, ultimately, too great a danger to young hands (or eyes) and disappeared from the shelves (and Santa's sleigh).

I gotta say that the poetry (lyrics???????) are great to read! Needs a chorus . . .
