A light note

TWO thousand years ago, three wise men followed a mysterious wandering bright star to Bethlehem.

Their names were Larry, Curly and Mo and they were the original “UFO freaks”.

Speaking of… my little “off the plant” poet has lost his favourite torch.

Let there be light…please.

Mary had a little lamp,

(She’s frightened in the dark).

Worked even better in the damp,

It came off Noah’s Ark.

But she fancies “mod and flash”,

Not ancient and unhandsome.

So she dumped it in the trash,

“Gone” went a king’s ransom.
