ONLY YULES & VERSES 21 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!



TELLY CHRISTMAS

 

Christmas on the telly 

Chock full of festive stuff, 

Eyeball indigestion, 

Some sparkle and some duff.  

 

Special this and special that 

Recorded last July, 

Bits of plastic holly 

And a snowy FX sky.  

 

Ancient classic movies

In flaky black and white, 

Conveyor belts of showbiz dross 

All through the day and night.  

 

Cartoons by the hundreds, 

Game shows by the score, 

Showbiz moves to overdrive 

To see we don’t get bored.  

 

But alas when all the watching’s done 

And we’re all drinking cocoas,

All eyeballs in the universe 

Are out of blinking focus.
