Credit Where Credit’s due – a tongue in cheek Christmas rhyme

Not many sleeps until Christmas,
Until magic and wishes collide,
And a big jolly man,
Of whom kids are a fan,
Takes their wildest dreams for a ride.

The magic of Christmas is tiring,
When you’re the one sat at the helm,
Making wishes come true,
And cooking lunch too,
It’s no wonder the role overwhelms.

Mere mortals aren’t made to do magic.
Wish granters we’re not, though we try.
But we must get it right,
Late on Christmas Eve night,
Or our children will sob, wail and cry.

But there’s one thing I can’t get my head round,
As I slave to make wishes come true.
I do all the hard work,
And go nearly beserk,
But the credit goes to you know who.

  2. That’s the price we parents pay Pooky, so suck it up and keep spending!!!

    I am sure Santa will be very generous to you too. Merry Christmas Pooky to you and your family.


  3. It will all be worth it when you see their little faces. I hope Father Christmas is good to you too. Have a lovely holiday.

    Yes that situation is a bit strange, but it does seem to inject some magic into life which is a good thing. Lovely poem
