ONLY YULES & VERSES 17 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!


TURKEY TROT  

 

Round and round 

The farmyard, 

A-huffing

And a-puffing, 

The farmer 

Chases turkeys 

While mother 

Makes the stuffing. 

 

RAIN DEAR  

 

Mrs Claus said to Santa: 

“If your bad cold’s so severe, 

Wrap up warm by the old log fire 

And don’t go out in the rain dear, 

Don’t go out in the rain.”

 

DEAR

They say Christmas is expensive

As to the shops we dash,

Well, look for the clue in this anagram,

As Christmas becomes ‘trims cash’.
