Season's Verses

Season’s Verses

“Christmas doesn’t come from a store, perhaps
Christmas means a little bit more.”--Dr. Seuss.


Such a pure joy you’re so busty,
for even though I can be crusty,
I think these things cost too much.
So this one’s on me--not Dutch.

from your Worst Half.


From the shape of this box,
You may think this is socks;
but no, it’s dotted with ducks,
so please don’t think it sucks.

from your Middle Daughter.

Show Me the Money

It is something that loves your cash,
and you’ll need it to buy corned beef hash.
Wearing it in front like a nut,
you avoid strain on your butt.

from your Mother-in-Law.

Vino Veritas

This is one you must not shake,
though it’s not something I did bake.
I’ll tell it’s fragile--enough said.
It can be enjoyed while in bed.

from your First Cousin.

haha - These were enjoyable to read and I think you had some fun writing
these witty rhymes.

Happy Holidays Glenn!

Jade Li said...

You have the brain power to make these effortlessly. Very fun and Bjorn is right, you'd probably have a lot of fun writing them for gifts you give. Happy Holidays, Glenn. See you in 2020!

These were all great fun, Glenn! I especially enjoyed the ‘Rah-Bra-Hurrah’. I wish you a merry Christmas and we'll get together at the Poets Pub in 2020!

Alexandra said...

Like everyone else, I hope these are real! Will now expend brain power solving the riddles.

Beautifully done, Glenn and it's all in the family. Appreciate most the humor especially asked for and it is not an easy task to accomplish, but you did it very well! More so the riddles also asked for keeping us wondering!
