Happy Holidays from Rhys


  1. Rhys, I think you missed your calling. didn't you write that other famous poem about a booksigning:

    I wish you'd come on Friday,
    It's always such a lark,
    We had a line around the block,
    For Mary Higgins Clark.

    sorry the sales are so flat
    we'll take your picture with the cat.

  2. Laughing out loud here. How do you write this stuff?

    My favorite Xmas poem is from the great Walt Kelley who penned Pogo cartoons. Here's the first verse of his immortal Deck Us All With Boston Charlie:

    Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
    Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
    Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
    Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

  3. Or champagne, a glass of champagne would be appropriate even if it didn't rhyme.

    But great poem Rhys

    and merry christmas!

  4. Happy Holidays to all the Jungle Reds! You guys are the best!!

  5. Lovely, just lovely.
