Cool Yule

Here's a splendid poem for the season, reproduced with kind permission of its author Shona Ashton (11).

You forget the true meaning of Christmas
The birth of Santa Claus
Here he comes now in his manger
Pulled by wild boars.

He had to use his manger
Cos his sleigh failed its MOT
Plus there was no snow this year
And the sleigh's a snow-riding machine.

Rudolph's lightbulb has broken
Either that or the battery's gone
The reindeers won't go anywhere without him
He's their hero, their Number One.

Santa has had enough now
Everything's going wrong
So if you're still waiting for presents
Be prepared to be waiting quite long.
