New Year verses


based on Russian jokes


With age
New Year
more often
and often
comes
to our door

with sparkling
Champaigne,
commemorate
joyous occasion,
throwing
glasses
on floor.

The man
gets confused,
saying to kids:
“I’m Grandpa Frost”,
and pulling off
a hat and beard –
to the wife:
“I warm you fast”.

Combative Petrushka
calmed down, awaits
for the master command,
deprived by dominant scarlet,
drown over the blue and white.

Man’s sluggish thoughts
drifting on facet
between new and old:
“Oh, every year I’m
buying new costume,
and sleep on the go.

So maybe this time
I will order a mattress
instead,
lifestyle representing,
resilient and fit
for the bed.

The Snow girl,
young and sober,
will drag me to home,
while Santa, oh Santa
 delivers   the presents
alone.

  5. I enjoyed these! Ha, it does seem that new year rolls around quicker and quicker as we get older. Sigh. I think I will celebrate with champagne this year but won't be throwing glasses on the floor though. Smiles.
