Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

There was Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Santa’s speedometer just needed some fixin’
He spruced up their antlers and he polished their paws
Despite grammar’s laws, he’s no subordinate Claus

Your rhyme is funny
And oh, so true...
Does Rudolph use a dimmer
When he's coming toward you?

Loved this one, David! Don't have any witty returns but I'm gonna watch The Santa Clause in honor of this punny poem.

What to my wondering eyes should appear

But a miniature sleigh which started to veer

Into the Wilson's empty swimming pool

All 8 tiny reindeer and a drunken old fool.

As a teacher and specialist in grammar, I just LOVE this! lol

I always liked Cheech Marin's retelling:

"No man, he's the big cat, always dresses in red, and flies around delivering goodies with his reindeer, Donner, Dasher, Vixen, Chui, and Vato..."

Now this
gives me
to pause.
And smile. :-)

Nice and light for early in the morning, though my poetry writing isn't that good.

I don't know if reindeer can fly
I've never seen them really close by
It don't matter if they really can
I just want my gifts from the fat man

Santa's been banned for drink driving,
Oh what will the children all do?
Grandad quick put these red clothes on,
But don't keep the whisky with you!
