That Christmas night

Rachel gave me ten words and challenged me to write a poem, here goes nothing.

Anything x
Coke x
Mango lassi x
Socks x
Heffalump x
Coat x
Bear x
Star x
Christmas x
Light x

On Christmas day this year
We shared a meal with bear
He was alone with none to share
So we gave him lots of love and care

Joining us with a pint of coke
Came heffalump, with a joke
His socks were completely soaked
So we wrapped him in a coat

We didn't have food or anything
To give them, except a ring
Of glasses with mango lassi and gin
It made them want to dance and sing

As the night started to arrive
Everyone of us started to jive
Beneath the moon and star light
We merrily partied that Christmas night

well done, perhaps Rachel should start hosting poetry challenges.
