That was, until I heard it at the show last night. Then all became crystal clear. Nobody but my son could have wrote this poem! My boy is a massive Christmas fan but it was his dry, old for his years, wit came through loud and clear. He spoke proud and perfectly clear in his best public speaking voice, betraying not the slightest hint of nerves. He was fab and very funny!
As we left the church, I told him how impressed I was with his poem, to which he raged "The teachers messed with it". How blimmin dare they! I asked him why on earth they had done that, knowing that his work was good enough not to need 'tweaking' and even if it had, that's his work and should be praised as is.
So, here for your festive enjoyment, is my son's UNEDITED Christmas poem. Merry Christmas
