You got a duff gift from your ‘mate’
Too large, in a colour you hate
It simply won’t fit
You’ll never wear it
No nookie mate now you can wait!

Santa’s little helper felt poorly sick
Couldn’t deliver presents for Saint Nick
His red nose was gleaming
Blue eyes they were streaming
I hope that Santa will give him some Vick
24th December 2014
Upon this very merry Christmas night,
MrsClaus has reason to be uptight,
Not Rudolph’s nose that’s red,
But MrClaus’s instead,
He rides slopes in sleigh with Miss Fanny Bright!

Santa's red cap is turning blue
his nose running with Christmas flu
and the Doctor's advice
was "it will be nice,
wrap the gifts with natural glue."
Santa Claus is busy in a Mall
But he will need YOUR help after all
To help meet his goal
Send one lump of coal
So Donald Trump can build his own wall
*SOS= "Save Our Sleigh"
Church Had Us Over Barrel
Church really had us over barrel,
Heard choir sing Christmas carol;
Ended up in danger and imperil.
Imperil means to bring into peril
Hic, oh my! hic am drunk again,
My head is spinning with pain.
T-was the demon drink
Caught me on the blink.
Somehow ended up in Spain.
contest A Quintain Christmas
phrase Happy New Year
This year I asked Santa for a Harley
and a flagon of wine made of barley.
Then I asked God alone
for an angel of my own...
no, not one of His, one of Charlie's!
As a teenage boy I loved Cheryl Ladd.
If no diamonds Ill try not to pout
For that’s not what Christmas is all about
Ill take Zirconium
Though its a Phonyium
But in the bedroom there could be a drought
Just kidding of course...
At Christmas I contracted the flu
From taking the kids to the zoo
The hippos were a wheezing
Ten monkeys were sneezing
Now my temperature’s a hundred and two!
A Grinch in a hamlet of Whovilles
Stole credit cards, ringing up big bills
Without checking price tags
He murmured, “Bah, Scumbags”
For this is how grinches get their thrills!

Christmas finds reindeer landing on rooftops
Santa’s kindly added some extra stops
His sleigh filled with travelers
Scared of TSA handlers
Scoff as coal through government chimneys drops
*For Francine’s Christmas contest
Poor Santa came down with a very bad cold
Thought he might have to put Xmas on hold
But Mrs Clause drove the sleigh
Rudolph laughed all the way
"The best Xmas ever!" so we've been told
Women rock! lol
For Jerry's contest...
At Christmas as always I ate
So much that I put on some weight
New year I must try
To stay off the pie
And next year, well I just can't wait.
A flying reindeer drank much beer
Wanting to be full of Christmas cheer,
When the man in the red suit pulled his rein
He wobbled in the sky with such disdain
He filled poor Santa with fear.
Holiday goodies, hung round the tree
They are the best you must agree
So did the dog then guess what
Up they all came, steaming hot
Next time just baubles and lights you'll see
On his annual flight about the earth,
Santa continues to expand his girth!
'Tis due to cookies and milk,
And other treats of that ilk,
That he samples from Botswana to Perth!

When that jolly red man with a sack
brings your wishes to you off the rack,
no late Christmas night
for first frosty light,
warm the car up and take it all back.
GOD: the goodness of determination,
a standard for better living creation.
to differentiate a civil or wild nation,
for smoothness a better flow no tension,
only patience, belief, trust asks to confirm.
Looks like we could have a green Christmas this year
Which is great as long as it snows on that day, d'ya hear
Just that special day
Then melt all away
Let's not go overboard, can't wait for spring to appear

Santa’s Little Helper
At the end of the ride on his sled
with Mrs clause naked in bed
he sought the ice melter
of his little helper
to arouse his surprise from the dead.

The after Christmas “let down” is upon us
All the hype is over, back to life's regular stuff
Let's keep it alive
Let happiness survive
We can do it no matter how difficult or tough

After too many hits off the bong
he knew something was drastically wrong
when the fire place log
barked like a dog
at a Santa Clause wearing a thong.
Went to Wal-Mart to buy a Christmas ham
All I could find was a giant traffic jam
Near the toys__decorations
By my calculations
Come day after Christmas, dumpsters see cram
I love decorating the Christmas tree
And lingering in ornament memories
A snowman I made
Back in 2nd grade
Reminds me of childhood glee and snow dreams
