A Christmas tail

Standard
A furry merry Christmas to you!

A furry merry Christmas to you!

Greetings, sunshine lovers!

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas 🙂

At the tail end of the Christmas celebrations, I wanted to share with you the poem I wrote for my friends at the South African rat club this year.

A Christmas tail

 

Imagine with me

if you will

that on that starry night

 

as shepherds praised

and wise men bowed

to meet the Child of light

 

between the cattle

through the hay

ran tiny gel-pink feet

 

and whiskers twitched

and black eyes glowed

to see the Child so sweet

 

With yellow teeth

and scaly tail

and fur as soft as fleece

 

a humble rodent

scurried in

to greet the Child of peace

 

Of course a rat

of all things made

could find its way in there

 

It scampered close

and sat quite still

to watch the Child so fair

 

Then bursting into

happy bruxing

to witness Christmas morn

 

a simple ratty

sang its joy-song

to the King there born.
