The Baron von Cracka Story
Baron von Cracka was first carved in wood,
and where he was finished he faithfully stood,
never speaking a word or in need of food,
Baron remained ever smiling and in a cheery mood.
At first sight all the courts were not amused,
for his likeness to some was not far removed.
Beautifully crafted he was oft mistaken for a man,
but his teeth could crack any filbert, cashew or pecan,
so in retrospect you knew he was of the nutcracker fam.
When asked to speak or crack nuts Baron refused,
and the royals, prelates and judges all greatly approved,
deeming he was perfect and could not be improved.
Now we have fashioned Baron von Cracka in glass,
and with love and care for generations he will last.
This loyal Cracka cannot be wooed,
will not be shaken, or become unglued,
focused and devoted to duty he is never confused,
always on guard at your tree he will never move.
