[A sonnet for children (For best results, read aloud in the style of Michael Caine). Sketch by Sara L. Russell. See also sonnet: Harley's Christmas, in links top of this page.]
The Christmas Fairies know when you've been good,
They also have an inkling when you're bad.
When pixies drink too much, when gnomes are rude,
The fairies know; it makes them boiling mad.
They'll shake white pepper down your chimney flue
Instead of fairy dust, on Christmas Eve,
To make sure Santa will not visit you -
He'll be sneezing so hard, he'll have to leave.
Do not anger the fairies, they are strong,
Their justice is the ninja's deadly code;
Written for those who can't tell right from wrong,
Stay well away from mischief's rocky road.
Eat all your greens and don't forget to pray,
Lest Tinkerbell should steal your toys away.

|Loved this Sara.
But it worked better for me in the style of Bob Hoskins, Sara.
But I remember Caine best from Get Carter.
BTW someone suggested a great career opportunity for you below. You could make a fortune designing tatoos.
