A Christmas Story

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Santa Claus had no idea
He’d left his list behind him,
Poor Rudolph had gone on the beer
And Santa couldn’t find him.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then Santa crashed into a door,
And all the toys got muddled,
And, when he ‘woke with head so sore,
His mind had been befuddled.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His sleigh was wrecked beyond repair,
And so he robbed a tandem,
And off he cycled everywhere,
Delivering gifts at random.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He didn’t know whose toys were whose,
He couldn’t quite remember.
Reindeer should stay off the booze
Especially in December.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 To little boys who wanted studs –
Two tickets to the ballet.
To girls who yearned for perfumed goods –
Southend v Crystal Palais.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He dashed around from house to house
As fast as he could scooter,
And thus you got a clockwork mouse,
And not a new computer.



Merry Christmas to the poetical football fraternity. May all your defeats be but blips on your rise up the table.
