An Ode to Christmas

leave a comment »

‘Twas a few days before Christmas

And all through the land

Holiday music was playing

Via radio or live band

The halls are not decked

No freaky elf on the shelf

Just me waiting for the Big Man,

Not Clarence, but Santa Claus, himself

I didn’t decorate this year

No lights red, green or bluish

It’s just that I’m lazy

Not that I’m Jewish

Since Santa’s a bit heavy

A change might be nice

Instead of cookies and milk

He’ll get steamed veggies and brown rice

The presents are wrapped

All with bows and stuff

Hopefully next month’s bills

Won’t be too rough

I sent my cards

To family and friends

This Florida weather is great

I hope it never ends

I’ll finish up now

I have a few things left to do

Merry Christmas to all

God bless most of you
