ONLY YULES & VERSES 12 OF 24 - CHRISTMAS LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT - HO! HO! HO!

 


When the original Only Yules & Verses book was self-published in 2013, an unsolicited comment appeared on Amazon.  I call stuff like this little nudges of encouragement.  Of course, for every flattering nudge, there are several pokes in the eye waiting in the wings. Here’s the comment:

 

“Only Yules and Verses is one of those special little books that you happen upon serendipitously. I have read authors' blurbs before extolling the mirth to be found in THEIR book only to buy the book and be severely disappointed. What an unexpected joy, therefore, to pick up this little gem and read it to the end with smiles, a few laughs out loud and some headshakes at the ingenuity of Joe Cushnan. I thoroughly enjoyed this and wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone.

 

P.S. I am not a friend or family member of the author, but how I wish I were!”


I'll take that!


ONLY YULES & VERSES - CHRISTMAS LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT 

HO! HO! HO!


SAGE AND ONIONS

 

A wise old sage

Who knew his onions,

Had ideas daft and sublime,

Why once he made a coat

From herbs –

An utter waste of thyme. 

 

HO-HO-HOSIERY

 

The fireman’s Christmas cracker jokes

Were no longer a surprise or shocking

For every year, the same old gag,

A ladder in his stocking. 

 

SAME OLD, SAME OLD

 

The children of the skinflint

Were never deluded

‘Coz every Christmas 

They got batteries,

Toys not included.
