Country Christmas

“Country Christmas Carol” --- dedicated to my family by Miriam McCue (creator of flamingo art, & poetry.so far.) We love to sing Christmas songs, My Grandson Bubba and I. And when we sing Country Christmas. We almost make the angels cry. A Merry Country Christmas To all those great Country Folk, And even to the City Slickers, Who also love to drink and smoke. We’ll take a drink for Bubba, Aunt Mike and Cousin Jim, And hope that this Christmas, They’ll say a prayer and sing a hymn. Gather round the still, Country People all. And hold up Uncle Bill So the old coot doesn’t fall. A Merry Country Christmas, One full of country joy. Little Willie wanted a 12 gauge, But all he got was a toy.

oops, you know what,I came here to comment on your making a cat poem and I noticed what I wrote at the bottom here. I think I had mixed you up with another person here who says "creator of really bad poetry" as her little motto. (she is actually really good)I guess I saw "creator of" at the top that you wrote and my mind played tricks on me and I finished it off in my mind with the other lady's motto. Sorry if I confused you! LUv, Andrea ps. GEt to work on your cat poem!!!
