Gifted

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What will you find in your stocking?
A little treasure or something shocking
pink, glittery and wearing antlers
Or worse, a box of chocolate Santas

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Will you receive the perfect gift?
Or will you wonder what it is?
the season to be jolly
For those not allergic to plastic holly

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Who this year did you buy for?
Your sons classmates or the cat-next-door?
step carefully in your choice of gift
To avoid a serious family rift

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When will you open your festive presents?
Before the turkey, duck, goose or pheasant?
surprise! Rip and tear the festive wrap
Or wait till after The Speech and power nap

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 How was your Christmas? Does it depend
On special gifts or time with friends
hip hip hooray, it’s just three points that count
To keep your season in with a shout

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Christmas awaits, it’s all wrapped up
Anticipation, celebrations erupt
Will the gifts you give go down well?
The final countdown, only time will tell

Notes

I hope ‘The Man’ likes what he finds in his stocking. A win against Millwall on Boxing Day is undoubtedly on his wish list.

Thinking of those who cannot be with their loved ones this Christmas;
may you find strength and peace from times past…
