Advantages A Christmas poem for Ciao members
Disadvantages Sorry if I have not included you all
Hello COT, do some of you remember Miss American Pie by Don MClean? This is my Christmas tribute to you all in festive vein.Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Terry and Art were nestled all snug in their beds,
While idioms and identity crises played hell with their heads.
And Jackyann with her parrot, and Ian in with his Zippo,
Had just settled their brains for a long winter's kippo.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave lustre to coat of sleek Alleycat below.
When, what to her wondering eyes should appear,
But the figure of Lindsey, calling, 'Doubles my dear!'..
"Now Newboy! now, Anaroos! now, Beckie and Luke!
On, Tigswade! On, Tuftie!, on Lazza and Nazuk!
To the top of the most read! to the top of them all!
Now write Silverstreak! Write Silverback! Write away all!"
And then, in a twinkling, young Aestro appears
With timely advice about mascara and tears.
As I opened my eyes to see what was beginning,
Wellibelli appeared to tell me she was minging.
Joined Danielalong ready with scissors and glue.
And a big book of Christmassy kid's stuff to do.
Love Christmas and messing around with this stuff,
I'll never grow up and just can't get enough.
Suzie and Liz wrote a festive review,
And some good old nostalgia from Sam-42.
Lobster Quadrille nearly trod on our tail.
And advice about animals was given by Dayle.
His movie reviews rock, his comments are skilful!
But Clownfoot's ratings were more than a skinfull!
His droll little mouth must be drawn up like a bow,
When he rates my reviews with a measure so low.
Luke had set out to be a Ciao millionaire,
But thank you dear Flumpet for taking me there,
Back to the land of Broon Ale and good cheer,
Oh how I miss a great pint of good beer.
Ambidextra I've told you already before,
What I'd gladly give up my good right arm for.
Tis' to be ambidextrous and write with both limbs,
An ambition or just one of those silly old whims.
A pair of wet wellies she held in her hand,
With butterfly patterns of wondrous brand.
Her name was Sgathatch and she sounded so good,
The product was great and it worked in the mud!
Now Phoenixgreen's a Geordie and part of my past,
Her reviews of my homeland are always a blast!
A mention of Berwick and stottie cakes there,
Has brought back sweet memories and the hint of a tear.
Let's write our reviews, and don't give a damn,
And hope 2007 won't end up in a jam.
But I heard Ciao exclaim, 'ere they drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and enjoy this fine site"
And before I depart to a duvet and bliss,
Snuggle down with my loved one and sweet goodnight kiss.
I'll pay my respects to my muse, a good bloke,
That's my favourite Ciao member Jack Daniels (and coke).
