Some people have an angel

on top their Christmas tree

some people have stars, snowflakes and birds but

Krampus is perched comfortably on top of my tree


Surrounded by seahorses, starfish and shells

and baubles with light silver waves

he  would   gladly skinny down from my tree

to the sound of tinkling bells, crunching glass

and other musical sounds

because Krampus is perched

merrily on top of my  Christmas and tree-

and given the choice

there are probably other things he’d like to do-

like not be stuck on top of a tree

when so many naughty people are about.
