On the ninth day of Christmas

On the ninth day of Christmas,
my good friend gave to me:
nine rounds of Scrabble,

eight baby chickens
seven sheets of bubble wrap,
six ripe red apples
five golden rings,
four moonshine margaritas,
three cans of mixed nuts,
two tattered lawn chairs (joined at the hip)
and an opossum in a bare tree.
