READERS’ POETRY: From the Bury Free Press of Friday, December 19
This week we have poems from D Meeings and Aland Claxton.
She is a help to people
Yes seems to be her word
Let’s put the kettle on says
Voice heard and all goods shared
I’ll have a garden party. With homemade cake to eat.
And all our pals in Elmswell will enjoy a happy treat.......
It’s high pressure time at Christmas
To please young girls and boys
All want expensive computer games
Instead of Santa’s toys.
So the elves were all retrained
Throughout the winter blizzards
Gone from making wooden toys
And turned into computer wizards.
No longer at the North Pole
Up there amongst the snow
Have moved to San Francisco
With aircon set ten below.
The location chosen by the elves
To please old Santa’s wife
Was the valley of Santa Clara
Or Silicon Valley to be precise.
So back there at the North Pole
The only things they stock
Are wind-up drumming monkeys
Jumpers, handerkerchiefs and socks!
