Merry Christmas to you..and I’m sorry it’s late
But at last I have finally caught up with this date
It is not something huge, for me in my life
]With family scattered and not having a wife
I started with coffee at breaking of dawn
Getting news for my blog on this year’s Christmas morn
I was up on the river just near Noosa Sound
Just to drink Old Salt Coffee with rain tumbling down
Then later I took a phone call from son one
Seems he’d had a big night and his head was undone
Some news of concern at the place he did stay
Super typhoon Nock-ten would be landing that day
Then later a call this time son number two
And we chatted of things in his life that were new
Then a friend not believing I am happy just me
Insisted that I go around there for tea
Alas there was eating… ham, jellies and such
By the end of it all I had ate much too much
After Family Feud and then Pictionary
I headed on home and sleep overcame me
So that was my Christmas, but what of your own?
Was it big celebrations? Another year flown?
Did you spend the day cooking, preparing the food
Or was it a day spent in lazier mood.
Or maybe some time you spent walking the beach
Your phone in your hand and your arm you’d out reached
To take just one selfie, your record of fame
So in years to come you can think “Oh how lame!”.
And so as I said in my opening line
I wish you good Christmas and good happy times
And as good that in two oh one six it has been
I wish you the best in two oh seventeen
