WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Jolly

To see Saint Nicholas as only or mostly jolly

Has got to be madness or the sheerest folly

The real Nicholas was soldier and sailor

Before commercialism draped him like a tailor

With a certainty he emulated Christ in all his ways

And brought a lot of joy in all of his many days

But, of all the stories that make me most smile

Is the tale of Nicea in which he issued denial

With a punch in the hertic’s soon broken nose

He taught him well or at least I would suppose

For while we celebrate St Nicholas in our memory

Arius and his fallacies are shorn from our tree

Let it be known that I am both surfer and servant

And warrior as my hero is to the most observant


St George Orthodox Church - St Nicholas Patron of Mariners
