As Santa Leaves Slab City

Santa hasn’t drunk cocoa tonight,
and he’s not dressed in red trimmed with white.
In blue denim so cool,
he is toasting the Yule
with a drink surely not mixed with Sprite!

Santa’s drink was a little too red,
and I think we have something to dread,
for he’s now in the sky
and he’s flying “too high”
as his sleigh widely veers overhead.

For the East Jesus Contest of Roy Jerden. 
See picture above , which was my inspiration. Can anyone tell me what that green
Thing on the inside of the goblet might be??

* Slab City is a snowbird campsite in the Colorado Desert in southeastern California, used by recreational vehicle owners and squatters from across North America. East Jesus is part of its artistic community.

    A snarky looking santa indeed. I can tell by his red face he is a heavy drinker. I think the green thing is a sprig of pot. Enjoyed mucho. Love, daver

    Great imagination, Andrea, in creating your whimsical Limerick from that picture! Very outside the box and absolutely very funny! GL in the contest! Sandra

    A glass of the same, without the green thing on the inside, please! The poem fantastic! Hope Santa doesn't look like this, dear Andrea! If he does, hope to skip visiting me! Ha-ha!

    I would like to have a glass or two of the red -- this poem was delicious! 7

    Really well done, I imagine that has to be a British actor from a scene in Shakespeare. I can't see the green thing being mint. If it is an avante guard version of Santa, then I'm with Tim a Bloody Mary or Bloody Ceasar (Hmmmm A Ceasar makes me think Shakespeare again.) with parsley or a minature Christmas tree. I love this very difficult to write. For me this is a fav.

    Two wonderful limericks Andrea...It does look like mint but the drink looks like a bloody mary so it quite possibly could be parsley

    You captured the picture very well and I think Lyric Man has the green thing right, it's mint.

    An over grown Olive perhaps? lol You're guess is as good as mine Andrea, but I like your verse, it reads well, good luck xxx

    Great job of this! I didn't know what East Jesus was but I'm intrigued now!

    And Andrea, I'm hoping its a mint. Your poem is so good you would think they painted the picture from your poem. By the way, that drink is too red ;)
