6JP's Christmas Poem

by Miss Porter

6JP have had a lot of fun rehearsing and recording their Christmas poem.  It is called 'Help Wanted' by Timother Tocher.  It tells the story of Santa's reindeer (Dasher, Comet, Prancer, Dancer, Cupid, Blitzen, Donner, Vixen and Rudolph), who, after years of helping deliver presents, are sadly past their best!  Santa is in need of a new herd, yet are there any other reindeer out there that could apply?

We hope that you all enjoy our poem! We wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy, peaceful holiday! 😊


Help Wanted by Timothy Tocher

Santa needs new reindeer.

The first bunch has grown old.

Dasher has arthritis;

Comet hates the cold.

Prancer's sick of staring

at Dancer's big behind.

Cupid married Blitzen

and Donner lost his mind.

Dancer's mad at Vixen

for stepping on his toes.

Vixen's being thrown out –

she laughed at Rudolph's nose.

If you are a reindeer,

we hope you will apply.

There is just one tricky part:

You must know how to fly!
