The Naughty List

Photo by Gustavo Fring on

a seasonal poem from inky

Santa’s had a little list

produced on parchment all year

to attribute presents to naughty and nice

If you’ve been good you have nothing to fear

See while he’s been busy in the workshop

his crack team of elves have been here

watching goings on of kids, mums and dads

and noting down stuff for santa to hear

So excesses are greeted with old oranges

and naughtiness greeted with coal

and santa’s elves have had a festive feast

eating all the good chocolate whole

Don’t worry for the kids who have been nice

They’re eating candy and sugared chocolate mice

So the good boys and girls have a nice time

while the bad boys and girls shed a tear

and the lesson to be learned? Don’t be bad – you’ll get burned

and you might get summat better next year
