Emily and Phoebe

Tuesday, December 19, 2006


According to her teacher, Phoebe is the unofficial school mascot, and as such has been awarded the role of Host in her class’s Christmas extravaganza. This will involve saying a short Poem of Welcome, which she has memorised:

Ladies, Gentlemen
And Friends, Good Morning!
The Holy Day has arrived
For us all to celebrate together!
Let us gather around
The Holy Manger
And Greet the Birth of Christ
With Devoutness.

She has also, unfortunately, memorised an additional couplet unhelpfully dreamt up by Adonis, which invites all those present to lift up their skirts and show their bottoms. This could lead to suspension, expulsion, and, probably, excommunication.
