Poem Friday – Whiskey, Wine or Beer


Whiskey, Wine or Beer
Author: Lesley Voth

I hope your christmas day was fun
The stress gone, the shopping all done

It is for me a special time to give and share
To those you love and to those that simple pleasures are rare

We take the time and make the effort to chat and skype
Email everyone, pleasant and happy words we type

In a few days it is New Years Eve
An evening of fun and frivolity I believe

2012, it came up on us so fast didn’t it
2011, bloody good its going, twas a year of shit

Though a good thing has come from 2011, many families glad to receive
Bringing our soldiers from Iraq home, permanently, not a temporary leave

It brings tears to our eyes to see the young children’s delight
Mum or Dad is home for good, they no longer have that war to fight

It does make me sad though when I think of those children in that war
Those babies that were killed, Parents hearts torn to the core
Dear Lord we pray for no more

No more killing, no children lay dying
No more leaving families in pain and crying

So I hope you had a great Christmas and have a fabulous New Year
It is prosperous, healthy, happy and full of good cheer

The New Year 2012 is almost here
So lift your glass whether its filled with Whiskey, Wine Or Beer
