Christmas Poem: Asante Santa

24 Dec 2016 at 04:46hrs | Views
I looked for my friend January

I could not find him because of penury

I heard of this girl February

Tried to party eating mulberry

We almost forgot of March

Until father came with a porch

For weeks we rejoiced very much

Stopping when a postman knocked in April

Delivering a letter from a pen pal

All the days I pondered in May

How can she invite me in cold June

When I had planned to come with Uncle

To shop for the bash of my darling August

I became petrified of travesty by Justice September

Heat scorched maize cobs from garden of October

We all avoided ceremonies with anger

To appease ritual November

Merry Christmas to Santa in December

It is end of year remember.
