Santa's reindeer went down with the flu He panicked thinking what can I do So he used all his charm Borrowed cows from a farm Not the answer but they'd have to do... Folks out walking all watched him fly by Saw no reindeer and they wondered why But they started to cheer Then all cowered in fear As cow pats splattered down from the sky. Written 23rd December 2020.

Wow.... this is so funny ! Imagine being splattered by cow's urine or dung from the air onto your neatly ironed dress...... Better watch out ! You could find a fitting image too, Tom

Merry Christmas Tom … here’s a similar poem I heard years ago: a little birdy way up high, dropped a message from the sky; and as I wiped it from my eye; I thanked the Lord that cows don’t fly - but I prefer yours - thank you Tom - Lindsay
