21 Nov 2016 – Welcoming the Christmas Spirit
Rudolf and Rude-On!
The drivers get nastier!
THAT Christmas spirit’s
the one that the Angels hushed –
“Peace On Earth” singing –
it ain’t at the shopping malls!
Blitzen and Blitzkreig!
“Let’s get in and out of here!”
Thousands and thousands
have all got the same idea –
pushing and shoving,
it’s Darwin and Santa Claus!
Who knows now who’s packin’ heat?
Out of breath, heaving,
mad dash with your packages,
dodging the Dancers
and Prancers in four-wheel drives.
Greed-green’s the brand new black!
Love weighed in carats
you bought with your heart attack!
Santa Claus warned us:
Dash away! Dash away all!
