Thanks to those who entered! ! The theme is 'Christmas'.

Bear in mind that you do not need to post your reasons in order to vote, although it is encouraged.

Voting will end on December 31. Good luck to those who entered!

Christmas in Aurelia

It has been many months
Since my dad came home

To enjoy a nice Christmas

And read his little tome.


He came home from a war

That was very bad

But now that he’s home

Me and my mother are so very glad.


Maybe we could get

A fancy Christmas tree

With the Aurelian star

To show that we are free


After that we could go

And surf the waves

Of beautiful Cape Aubrey

Oh that would be my fave


When we get back home

We’ve sing away our fears

For because of our freedom

We can wish ourselves a Happy New Year.

The Joy of Christmas

Dirty brown snow, which clenches to your feet
Expensive or sold out gifts, together on a list
To be picked up where all last minute shoppers meet
The air filled with the same old music, never with a twist

Hustling through the masses, last shop in sight
Passage blocked by screaming brats, standing in a line
Waiting for an old man, with his reindeer might
After the last check out, that last box finally mine

Lugging heavy bags, looking for the parking spot
Searching for the keys, on the bottom of the bag
Joining the other cars, which are there a lot
Speeding up an breaking, the drive home is a drag

But when the diner is over, presents are unveiled
Happy with their family, you open your first beer
Away with frustration and agony , to their wishes you did yield
But you know it was worth it, and will be again next year.



--------


Santa Claus is Comin' to Town

I keep a quill in my pocket
even got a bag of loot
If your window's open, better lock it
and beware the man in the red suit

I'll sneak in while you're sleepin'
'round midnight Christmas eve
Through the shadows, I'll be creepin'
with a knife hidin' in my sleeve

My knife, I keep it sharp, you see,
it'll cut you nice and quick
No time for you to scream, you'll see,
'fore your blood runs red and thick

My quill is soft and ivory white
'til I dip it in your blood
When the kids wake up at morning's light,
bet they'll wish that they'd been good

I'll stuff their stockings 'til they bloat
'neath the tree leave presents too
And on the mantel there I'll leave a note
signed in blood from 'you know who'

Then I'll be slippin' out the window
won't be readin' the front page
'Til next year I'll be layin' low
and polishin' my blade

Just remember I'm always watchin'
and if it's you I pick
'Round your corner I'll be droppin'
I ain't your average St. Nick.

Alright! I voted for the last poem, 'Santa Claus is comin' to town'. A quite different take on the Christmas theme and I found it to be a funny poem (but maybe I just have strange sense of humor :P).

Agreed with niesl2.

That was a great different take on a Christmas poem in my eyes. It flowed really nicely, and it had me going 'Oh shit, that's not a really... Merry Christmas. *gulp*'

I love the way it was written.

Two seemed the most realistic out of the three. :D Made me laugh as I wobbled through nasty brown snow from work at midnight the other day. -_-

Really liked all the entries, but my vote is going to number 3.

I have to agree with the previous two voters. Number 3 stood out the most to me. Number 1 seemed quite childish like a...Christmasy...war timey nursery rhyme. I think 2 adequately describes the Christmas shopping experience but it wasn't for me.

I liked Number 3's take on the theme so that's where my vote's-a-goin'.
