The Otto der Nussknacker Story
This is the tale of Otto der Nussknacker,
who glitters and shines in his coat of brilliant lacquers.
A deep thinker he stands at attention and has much to offer,
but forever on duty he will never join in any chatter,
or break file with a fit of giggles or a bout of laughter,
but if directly asked a question, he will silently answer.
A dapper dresser he is debonair with elan and swagger.
He possesses both the je ne sais quoi and x factors,
everyone adores him and he unwitting holds them captive.
Many admirers have sent him rounds of smackers,
their stories could fill several books with many chapters,
earning him the title of “Casanova of the Crackers,
but the limbs of a tannenbaum are what Otto adores,
and always pines longingly for.
Otto will deftly handle any night noise mysteries or matters,
quietly conquering all unknown booms, bumps or clatters.
A friend to all, including the postman, prosecutor and pastor,
Otto is part of the special secret order of glass nutcrackers,
who will guard and stand by you, now and happily ever after.
