Decanting the sherry

We built the snowman with white bricks
and a sheet of blue tarpaulin
then it started snowing,
that’s sod’s law.

Ebeneezer, he’s a geezer that we know
and not a character from some old
Dickensian tearjerker
stopped by to say hello and collect the

and then we waited for the sleigh bells
and we waited
and we waited
until all hell had frozen over
we went ice skating instead
