Here is an extract...I hope you enjoy.
Once upon a midnight dreary, came a figure oh so clearly,
A man rotund all dressed in red, crept silently beneath my bed,
I followed him 'til I could see, him steal my gifts beneath our tree,
And as I was about to shout, I pinched my arm removing doubt,
On yelp he turned, fell on our pouf, then scampered up onto the roof,
I yelled, I screamed, my Mum came in, ‘a man,’ I shrieked, ‘with twisted grin.’
As I sat down my Mum she told, me stories of this Santa old,
Convinced, I wasn't, of his good, why creep around beneath a hood?
I pondered long upon this thought, this bearded thief, soot-prints he brought,
This Santa fella, bringing toys? Why eat our food, why make such noise?
‘I'm not convinced,’ I told my mum, ‘if he's so good why drink our rum?’
My mum she laughed and snorted out, her wine, then hugged, I still had doubt.
A year past by as midnight struck, I sat up waiting for this buck,
As surely as each year you age, the man strolled in, bag light and beige,
I've waited a long time for this, you thieving man, trespass in bliss,
You took my pies, my milk and still, you crunched my carrots at your will,
I know you Claus, I know your game, but still you collect up all the fame,
You fraud in red, your cheeks all rosy, butter melts? You must be dozy,
Come with me on a journey of its creation through my facebook site Tom's Storytime.
