Marching Band Drummer Nutcracker Red Pants Uniform and Furry Hat

Nutcracker Poem

By R. Renée Bembry


Nutcrackers can either be ornamental or useable depending on the type in question. Ornamental nutcrackers, like the marching band leader on the left, are intended for decorative purposes. People often display this type of nutcracker during Christmas holidays because many of them are holiday oriented.

Unlike ornamental nutcrackers that usually consist of wooden construction, useable nutcrackers tend to be made from strong metal. Useable nutcrackers are actually used to crack nutshells. Generally, nutcrackers that actually crack nutshells have two handles that connect to a square or rounded upper section. Users places nuts in the nut area and then squeeze the handles to crack the nutshells. This makes cracking and opening nuts for consumption a whole faster and easier than hitting nuts with hard objects or squeezing nuts against one another.  After cracking a shell with a nutcracker, all one needs to do is separate the nut from the shell and consume the nut (edible parts)!

Although decorative holiday nutcrackers may not actually crack nuts, they certainly look inviting when meticulously placed around the house! 


Nutcracker Poem


I’ll always be a nutcracker


Crush almonds in my mouth smacker

So many I’ll lose track of ‘em


Hard shells spur fun for fracturing




Though half my teeth lie flat against my chin


The rest rise and fall each time that you tilt


The handle waiting calmly on my back


To help with every nut I get to crack

Matters not that


My arms are stiff


Rigid legs taught and lifeless


It’s all right that my hands are spheres



My feet stuck to my da-is


The job is clear


I must fulfill


My duty without worry


Thus never shall I hesitate


When nuts enter my muzzle
