What the Dickens am I going to write?


I gathered my courage and wits to say this,

“I don’t know what to write!”

Dickens you know I am a chicken

but for Lynda I will be a wolverine!


Oliver Twist I am glad that you’re not twisted

despite that you were amidst a wicked environment.

What is your secret for remaining pure-hearted?

Tell us all Oliver that we may learn.


Ebenezer Scrooge why so sour, greedy and stingy

when your stay on earth is only temporary?

Thanks to Jacob Marley and the 3 Ghosts of Christmases

you were transformed to a generous and compassionate fella!


Isn’t it great to wake up with joy and love in the heart?

Wait do I hear A Christmas Carol?

What are we waiting for — let’s sing now!

Merry Christmas!


Lynda thanks for inviting me to the poetry challenge even though you very well knowย that my entry is less of a poemย but more on fun and smile.

      Thanks Maggie!
      But Charles Dickens didn’t enjoy it
      because he said this,
      “The age of chivalry is past.
      Bores have succeeded to dragons.”

    Your Christmas tale transported me through times of a child, watching Oliver Twist and A Christmas carol.

    That is a gift that could never be packaged.

    Thank you!

    take care Alan
