A CHRISTMAS DECORATION

By Josie Whitehead

Christmas Decoration (A)

*

‘Twas

the day

before Christmas;

I thought I’d go mad.

The presents weren’t wrapped

and had I forgotten poor old Dad?

Yes ‘twas the day before Christmas

when my pies were quite burnt.

The oven belched smoke!

What a lesson I’d

 learnt!

*

‘Twas

the day

before Christmas,

but the icing went runny

With my turkey still frozen,

it certainly wasn’t very funny.

Well ‘twas the day before Christmas

 when I packed up my case and

 when Christmas arrived

I’m afraid that I

disappeared

without

trace.
