What will you find beneath your tree this Christmas?
a wonderland of snow
gifts elegantly circled with red satin bows
8 knives for carving
1 rope for climbing
a lifeless form
beneath the fresh-cut Christmas Tree
Read my “festive” poem “Beneath the Christmas Tree” over at Pen of the Damned.

Now that would be an example of a “bad santa present”…another fine write.
12 days of Christmas with a spin… a bloody one
You know what we’ll find under the Christmas tree, A handsome Santa,with a big smile on his face. Lots and lots of gifts from heaven,because God likes good people like you . He trusts you to spread the Christmas spirit all around the globe.
My best wishes to you ,have a wonderful,enjoyable,unbelievable Christmas with all those who are near and dear to you and an amazing New Year!
