A Taste of Things to Come

We've chosen an small selection of new poems from The Peculiar Poetry Collection of Funny Christmas Verse to whet your appetite:

Forced Entry
by Paul Curtis

I came home today to a horrible sight
All the doors and windows were smashed in
And inside, everything was gone
They had taken absolutely everything
I felt so violated so degraded
How could something like this occur?
What sort of sick person does that?
To someone's Advent calendar

From The Prelude

Is He or Isn't He?
by Patrick Winstanley

Big bushy beard
An ill-judged suit
Bulging belly
A sack of loot

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day
by Max Scratchmann

This is the story of Jennifer Titmuss,
A girl who wanted it to always be Christmas,
She hung mistletoe in February and put holly up in June,
And Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was her all-time favourite tune.

Her husband was frustrated, though he didn’t let it show,
But he only ever got some, when under mistletoe,
He said to her, my Jenny, why do you love the Yule?
She answered him, oh Cedric, it’s the season that is cool.

I love hot mince pies in August and crackers in mid March,
And gaudy Christmas packages that crackle like the starch,
Why plod through a dull January and wan and sunny May,
When we can have roast chestnuts, every Christmas day.

But surely there’s merit in the joys of the Spring?
And I’m sure that it is possible to burry this Yule thing,
But she shook her head slowly, said enough of this banter,
Our marriage is over, I’m going off with Santa.

Christmas Gifts – His And Hers
by Paul Curtis

I got a book for Christmas
“101 sexual positions”
I got it from my brother
My wife also received a book
“102 handy excuses”
A present from her mother

From The Interlewd

God's Gift
by Patrick Winstanley

God gave his one begotten son
The special gift
Of turning water into wine

So why did God give everyone
The specious gift
Of turning wine into urine?

From Misery and Misanthropy

Away In A Manger
by Paul Curtis

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed …
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head
I don’t think it matters
How gently you sing
Social services don’t care
For this kind of thing

From Parody and Pastiche

Hooray for Hawkin!
by Max Scratchmann

Hooray, it’s the Hawkin catalogue, that’s Christmas all wrapped up,
A whoopee cushion for Granddad, for Dad a boob-shaped cup,
We’ll get Uncle Fred a science kit and a French maid dress for his wife,
And great Grandmamma will have a rocket, she’ll have the time of her life.
A silent whistle for Bonzo, a book of farts just for fun,
And a bus ticket to the charity shop, to dump all this stuff when we’re done.

From The Aftermath

Recycling is Fine, But...

The Christmas eBook contains 47 new funny Christmas poems, together with a selection of old favourites which have appeared on the Peculiar Poetry site in past years. The collection is exotic, quixotic and occasionally erotic, which means that it is unsuitable for children and will not be to all adult tastes. Small 'c' conservatives, large 'c' Christians and large Americans, in particular, will find much to offend their sensitivities. Others will revel in the oblique humour and excuse the occasional lapse in taste.

A Perfect Christmas Present

Perfect as a present for a hard to please relative (any relative!), a secret Santa gift for a colleague, or a small indulgence for oneself, The Peculiar Poetry Collection of Funny Christmas Verse is ribald, riotous and ridiculously cheap.
