Dank, dismal, dark days

Dreaded and disregardful

Dreary by design

There has to be a valid reason

Why we only see these for one season

Speckled eggs are so yummy

We should fill up our tummy

No matter the date, I don’t want to wait!

Could this be an act of treason?

The Magic of Christmas

Was born in a manger

In ever so tiny a space

With the brightest star

Shining His light on us all

Tis Jesus, our saving grace

Oranges aren’t Apples ~ #poetry #DecemberWriting

Though tough skinned on the outside

She holds her softness deep inside

The apple, on the other hand

Is only soft when he’s been pied

Too many nights out drinking

Upside down, he makes his way

Rolling around the counter top

With a bunch of nuts, he sways

She can no longer watch him

She needs to squash this party boy

There’s only one way to end it

To get back some sweeter joy

Seductively peeling her outer layer

She reveals what he’s been waiting for

Then, when he least expects it

She rolls him on the floor

Never mess with a naval gal

She’ll get even when she’s crossed

Now all that’s left, a broken stem

‘Cause the apple has been sauced

The Naughty List ~ #poetry #DecemberWriting

They were Santa’s naughty secret

Ones he kept from Mrs. Claus

Imagine what the elves would think

If they knew about his flaws

How Santa loved the ladies

Each place he stopped had more

Swayed and seduced, how could he!

Surely the Mrs. would be sore

If she were to find out exactly

What the jolly old man did at night

Now Santa’s on her naughty list

And she’s the one out of sight

So remember when you hear the sound

Of jingle bells in the sky

It’s not Kris Kringle in the sled

But Mrs. Claus, just swinging by
