Tommy fell asleep
wishing for a brand new bike.
He cried the next day.

      Thanks guys. My Christmas bike was a 2nd hand racer. I felt like the cat who got the cream.

    Ha! Simply charming. a few short words summons a great deal of memory and wishful thinking of shiny new chrome and boyhood least that is what a bike was for me as a child.

    Hi Michael,

    In these days of severe crisis, lots of children will be crying there eyeballs out after Santa has paid a visit, most especially when they assume they must have been 'bad' to not see their wish granted.
    For parents Christmas is a difficult time, when means are few and wishes of their off spring are big. ( and lots of peer pressure on them as well!)

    Well done, much more to this poem than meets the eye.

      You are so right Christmas time is too expensive and its increasingly difficult to meet expectations. Dont ypu miss the simple gifts; the homemade toys, the satsuma and nuts.
