XMAS is just around the corner.

' I was wondering if Slice buying a ham  for Xmas , or ,  will be begging RD for one ? Just asking ? '

What does Xmas mean to you ? Peace on Earth goodwill to men ?
Maybe .

De house in disarray
Chairs don't have no cushions
Windows blinds less , could see right into  Blanche's  house ,
Tiptoeing over  the   new  varnished  floor
Sitting on the table , furniture polish.

Smoke from a bottle lamp  , sut swirling ,
Steam  the flickering  morning shadows
Hearing  a pig or goat  in the distance .
Xmas Time . This is it
A large galvanized tub , water boiling
Dawn breaking

" Ca this 5 pounds for Ms Harris , and tell Sonny come for the head for Maise. "

Did I say it was raining that morning ?

Re: XMAS is just around the corner.

Words are ...

I mentioned 'sut' from a bottle lamp .  Language ....

sut  =  soot  >>   Soot/sut  is a mass of impure carbon particles resulting from the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons.

' hope that cleared that up . lol.
