Christmas Tomorrow

Christmas tomorrow.
Mother said,
lie down and sleep,
My sleepy head.

Look, here comes Santa
Happy and merry
Not surprising
After mince pie and sherry.

Christmas stocking
Hanging askew
Now filled with love
And something new

Oranges? Apples?
What a surprise!
You should see the horror
In the little kid’s eyes

Where’s the Nintendo
You promised before
I can’t train my brain
With an apple core!

NB. This little ditty scribbled in league with the latest craze,
the NINTENDO TRAIN YOUR BRAIN game

Smiles. I like it. Merry Christmas, Val. I may go missing for a few days. I'll be busy with Christmas, and our daughter, son-in-law and baby Zaeya arrive tomorrow.

LOL I doubt there's any kids would be satisfied with oranges and nuts in their stockings these days.

Memories of nuts and oranges. Is this your poem Valerie?
Happy Christmas.

Valerie said...

Brian, yes, exactly.

Mona, have a great time with your family.

Pearl, you're so right.

John, yes. I wrote it last year.

Happy Christmas all.

Mel said...
