Poetic Interlude XXXVI

Angels, shepherds, jolly – jolly!
Snow, and virgins decked in holly:
Other things that end in “olly” –
Christmastime is here!

Feast on pudding, and on turkey:
Yuletide thoughts grow rather murky –
Ancient virgins – who were perky?
Christmastime is here!

Fast away the old year passes;
Relatives top off their glasses
(Eggnog turns them into asses)
Christmastime is here!

Angels, shepherds, jolly – jolly!
Snow, and virgins decked in holly:
Other things that end in “olly” –
Christmastime is here!

A huge thank you to Mr. Terry Pratchett, who provided the inspiring phrase for this in one of his novels, many years ago.
