Christmas Lights

Christmas lights


Dad spent all day putting up the lights

The inflatable snowman and reindeer,

It was snowing heavily, he was soaked right through

So I went outside to give him some cheer.


He looked so proud of his work so far

“pass me that cable, the one over there

but watch out for the bulbs lying around

be careful where you go, tread with care”.


At dark family gathered for the big show

Dad plugged in the lights, all remained black,

Puffed on his pipe sending clouds of white smoke

That shrouded his head as he rubbed his sore back.


Almost pulled out his hair as he checked each bulb

I went to my room and decided to hide,

Before he found the broken light bulb

With my small footprints either side!
