 There are 14 days until Christmas.


A Peculiar Christmas
by Roy Fuller


Snow? Absolutely not.

In fact, the weather's quite hot.

At night you can watch this new

Star without catching the 'flu.

Presents? Well, only three,

But then there happen to be

Only three guests. No bells

No robins, no fir-trees, no smells


- I mean of roast turkey and such:

There are whiffs in the air (a bit much!)

Of beer from the near public house,

And of dirty old shepherds, and cows.

The family party's rather

Small - baby, mother and father -

Uncles, aunts, cousins dispersed.

Well, this Christmas is only the first.
