2019 New Year Countdown 6: Writing Resolution


Grab your pen and thinking cap,
Sit down and look for improvement,
And write this years resolutions,
Just so we can all break them in January.

Or take the thing one step further,
And don’t write resolutions at all,
Just aim for daily improvement,
And work to improve the world for all.

2019 New Year Countdown 5: Boring Point In The Middle


In the boring mid point,
Between Christmas and new year,
There is little on TV,
And no more cold beer.

Nothing exciting happens,
Within these short few days,
Offices are sat closed,
And have all played.

2019 New Year Countdown 4: Sick Of Turkey


Not again,
I hear you cry,
We had it yesterday,
You all sigh.
Never again,
You all will parade.
Not on my plate,
Will turkey be again.

2019 Christmas Countdown 26: Christmas Countdown 2020


It’s come and gone,
For another year,
The presents are open,
And so is the beer,
Now all that’s left,
Is to say,
365 days left,
Till the next Christmas Day.

2019 Christmas Countdown 25: Merry Christmas


As you sit warm,
In your PJs,
Eyeing up your presents.

Have a happy Christmas,
And spread the love,
At this time of sharing.
***
We all love a good gift,
Or hidden surprise,
And treat under the tree.

So celebrate everyone,
Show your heart,
And hug your family.

Merry Christmas to you,
From the PeskyPoet.

2019 Christmas Countdown 24: Get Excited


There are traditions to uphold,
And new ones to make,
A Christmas tea to be had,
And cakes to be baked,
Movies to watch,
And board games to be played,
And that one tradition,
We all insist has just been made.
***
Bit after the excitement,
It’s time to sleep,
Before he sees you,
When he creeps,
And drops down the chimney,
With sooty foot,
To leave the presents,
Where the tree is stood.
***
Sleep well in the thought,
That Santa will come,
His gifts will bring joy,
To everyone,
And make sure to leave,
One thing out for he,
A drink of milk or maybe some brandy.

2019 Christmas Countdown 23: Reindeer


Right around the corner,
Each child is wearing,
In will come Santa Clause,
No sound he will be making,
Down on the roof,
Each house he will visit,
Ever quiet and still,
Reindeer silent on hoof.
