disturbing the sleep of sheep

The afternoon nap foregoneIMGP8195sm3

for grans and grandads and my mum

heaven knows what I’d have done

if it wasn’t for nativity.

If I’m supposed to be a sheep

missing my post midday sleep

I’ll be the best sheep I could be

and welcome the nativity.

There’ll be no dry eyes watching me

and my school pals delivery

we’ll give this spectacle for free

our annual nativity.

And those who watch with laughing eyes

however able and however wise

will see right through this small disguise

thankful for nativity.

For as the years drip from the tree

its not shopping  makes it Christmassy

but joining inspirationally

this special nativity.
