23 Dec

Carefully crafted event, much too scarce

Ho! So unheard-of that many think it’s farce

Really, a king is born in the stable of an ass

In swaddling clothes mingled with grass

See, love it is, extended to every age and class

That Christ’s here to save sinners en masse

Man or woman, lad or lass

And that just defines Christmas:

Story defying logic and maths


This piece is an acrostic – each line beginning with the successive letters of


Merry Xmas to all.
