12 Drummers

A tone deaf drummer is much like an apple pie
Without any fish in it.
A non sequitur.

A rhythmless drummer is much like a lake
Without any water in it.
A travesty.

Twelve drummers flailing are much like Excedrin
Without any medicine in it.
A headache.

I hear a drum in the distance
the rhythm quick and steady be
It reminds me of the seaman
Of a time when sailing was

Beat to quarters Mr. Clarence
To the foresail if you please,
Look lively now to the tops'ail
Rig the ship to match the need

Your 12 drummers should remind us
Of the promise He has made;
Freedom from our earthly toil
Life for those who believe

Good luck to you in this new year!
