This challenge was supposed to be a Christmas poem. This is as close as I can get on an 85 degree day in September. hehe


Just around the corner is the season that I like
would have to say it has been, since I was just a tyke.
There arenít many Christmas songs with which you can relate
just a lot that stick inside your head, the ones you really hate.

OK when first you hear them, youíll find you sing along ,
but after mid November Öall their charm is truly gone.
Twelve days of Christmas, Rudolph and Frosty too,
every store you step in will play new versions just for you.

What happened to the old ones we learned when we were small,
ones your kids have never heard and stores never play at all.
Like "Christmas is coming the geese are getting fat
wonít you please put a penny in the old manís hat."

But its 85 degrees out and I shouldnít think of snow
poetic challenges take you places that you never thought to go.
U K Hero gave me this one guess he thought heíd stump me to
but with a mind like Iíve got thatís not an easy thing to do.
