Mawkish but maybe.......

#1 might amuse some.and it's a better target than fig 11
A group of boys walked past the tank, not one was past his teens,
Their eyes were hard as polished flint, their faces drawn and lean.
They walked the street in armor with their rifles shouldered tight,
their dearest wish for Christmas, just to have a silent night.

Other soldiers gathered, hunkered down against the wind,
To share a scrap of mail and dreams of going home again.
There wasn't much at all to put their lonely hearts at ease,
They had no Christmas turkey, just a pack of MREs.

They didn't have a garland or a stocking I could see,
They didn't need an ornament--they lacked a Christmas tree.
They didn't have a present even though it was tradition,
the only boxes I could see were labeled "ammunition."
Edited one time - I had to stop and go throw up


Do you read 'Guns & Ammo'? or is this just a one off?

Well, seeing as it's poetry I'll submit my old favourite, the anthem to Heinz Beanz:

Heinz Beanz are good for your heart,
the more you eat....the more you fart,
the more you fart.....the better you feeeeeeel
so eat Heinz Beanz with evvvvveeeeeerrryyyyy meal!

Or we can have 'Hackles tune':

I didn't mean to forge that letter
i thought that i'd only make things better
but now I'm doing an 18 stretch
and prison porridge makes me retch
and every day I have to cower
when i meet Bubba in the shower
'cos ah'm his bitch, he told me soooo!
nowhere to run, no where to goooo!,
we're playing mums and dads at 6 o'clock
I'm dad this time, but ah've gotta suck mums coooooooock!
It's fcking rough in Straaaaaaaaaaangewaaaaaaaaaaays!

One for BBC

I'm on a diet
I thought that I would try it
I'd like to be a size 10
so I could attract all the men
but I like to eat more than plenty
so looks like I'm stuck at Size 20!
Happy Christmas Frey Bentos, Happy Christmas to you!

Happy Christmas fans!
