I THINK THIS PERSON IS YOU
By Josie Whitehead
Who’s been pestering Mummy right now -
And pestering Daddy as well?
Who’s been helping to mix Christmas cake
And enjoyed the Christmassy smell?
Who has been asking for too many things
And who has been planning ahead?
Who gets excited when Christmas Eve comes
And can’t get to sleep in their bed?
Who will be listening for Santa to come
And who’ll fall asleep as they do?
Who’ll wake up early to see if he’s been?
Do you think that this person is YOU?
Who’ll wake up others when searching for toys,
When they know they’ve been told they must wait?
Who won’t understand their Mum and their Dad
If they stay in their bed until late?
Who’ll invite others to play their new game
But won’t want these others to win?
Who likes to cheat sometimes during the game
And if told off, it’s then that they grin?
Who’ll be enjoying a nice Christmas lunch
And who’ll pull a cracker or two?
Who knows the answers to all of these things?
For certain I’m sure it is YOU.
