Gwen Petersen: In a Sow’s Ear 12-26-11

There’s many ways to enjoy Christmas. My way is to write Christmas poems, some funny, some foolish and maybe some that have a meaningful meaning. The following covers all bases, sort of. It can be warbled to the tune of “Oh, Christmas Tree.”

 

Rockin’ at Christmas

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t go plumb nuts at Christmas.

With all the hype and hoopla noise

Recommended Stories For You

And all the silly useless toys.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t come unhinged at Christmas time

At Christmas time, at Christmas time

Don’t go plumb nuts at Christmas.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t over-spend at Christmas.

Don’t go uptown to buy a gift

The traffic moves at less than swift.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t come unhinged at Christmas time.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t over-spend at Christmas.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t lose your mind at Christmas.

In rush-hour’s grid-locked tangled mess

Don’t put up with shopping stress.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Don’t come unhinged at Christmas time.

At Christmas time, at Christmas time

Don’t lose your mind at Christmas.

Oh Christmas time, Oh Christmas time

Stay close to home this Christmas.

No further shopping sprees for thee

You’ll get back your sanity.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Try resting up this Christmas time.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

Stay close to home this Christmas.

At Christmas time at Christmas time

May God bless you at Christmas.

May you enjoy your Christmas treats

Of yummy food and blessings sweet.

At Christmas time, at Christmas time

Good health to you this Christmas time.

Oh Christmas time, oh Christmas time

May God bless you at Christmas.
